X2 Programmer's Editor
Multi-platform programmers text mode editor, derived from Tim Baldwin's XE code sample, which in turn was originally inspired by OS/2's E series of editors, and X2 has similar REXX based extension functionalities as the Enhanced E Editor does.
Supported Operating Systems
In addition to OS/2, X2 is available for HP-UX, Linux on x86 and S/390, Windows NT and newer, SunOS, AIX and FreeBSD. There is also an experimental version for Windows with a graphical interface.
Development of the editor has slowed down considerably since the turn of the century, Mr. Thompson has done a little bit of work on the NT variant and Linux variants of the editor but most other versions have been unchanged for more than a decade.
