I want to do the editing right on the CoCo(3FPGA) and I don't want to 
deal with the hassle of moving the files back and forth.  I've already 
done that with some stuff I've worked on and it's just a pain.  I did 
play around with a copy of MicroEMACS once on the CoCo but there were 
some problems with key bindings or something like that as I recall.   To 
be honest, one of my favorite editors for text files is Norton Editor 
for DOS from a long time ago.  It's very fast and I've memorized the 
keystrokes for common operations.  I've been using it since the early 
90s.  Just wish something comparable was available under NitrOS9.
