I think I would be more productive in terms of coco software, if I had an 
editor that could function thru a terminal link like minicom.

Mike Sweets old Ed3.1 might be a candidate but its married to the cocos 
graphics a bit too deeply, although I do like the use of the alt key for 
the command invocation.

Up to now, I have been using the tsedit to vi conversion, renamed to ed 
internally, but for some reason that has lost its ability to write the file 
back after editing it, reporting a "disk error, Press BREAK" and leaves the 
file untouched.  But because it uses a bunch of vertical tabs going into and 
back out of the edit mode, it doesn't run with minicom in either ANSI or 
VT-102 modes.

Anybody have any suggestions for a stable, works over /t2, editor for the 

Cheers, Gene
