The Netlabs EPM Distribution (NEPMD) it is a collection of open source macros and scripts that extend functionality and simplify the usage of the Enhanced Editor (EPM) from IBM that is shipped with the OS/2 Warp operating systems.


Amongst the features that NEPMD offers are:

  • User-friendly default configuration
  • Improved keyword highlighting
  • Configurable colour schemes and info bars
  • New menu, toolbar and additional keyset
  • Mode-dependent configuration including syntax expansion with coding styles and expression matching
  • Improved command shell features
  • Easier configuration to avoid macro recompilation.


  • Latest official build: 1.0 (2002)
  • Beta version 1.18 (2018)
There is unofficial support for the package on OS/2 Warp 3 and OS/2 Warp Server 4, this installs a slightly older version of EPM on the system.
