The Hessling Editor is a multi-platform VIO character-mode editor that closely mimics the mainframe VM/CMS XEDIT tool, with a few extra features taken from KEDIT. It uses REXX as its macro language and is more frequently known by its initials, or THE than by its full name.


  • Current version for all platforms is: 3.3 Release Candidate.

THE should work out of the box and can utilise any version of REXX as the scripting engine, if you want to compile it yourself however you will need nCurses or a version of any other reasonably modern curses library.



  • Open source software released under the GPL v2
