Finding a good text editor for the Palm OS is difficult-you either find an editor that cant handle memory cards, one that it not usable, or a full-featured and slow office suite. Peter Thorstenson’s tejpWriter is an editor designed for writing texts-and it does this well!
tejpWriter is based around the Palm DOC format. This means that you ‘load’ a file to RAM, work with it there, save it to the card and then manually ‘unload’ it from RAM.
The editor’s display is customizable, you can choose font, front and background colors:
tejpWriter’s implementation of the toolbar is incredibly smart, we already covered it in the past here. It contains functions like xClip, an unlimited-size clipboard…
On the negative side, tejpWriter requires a considerable amount of thinking when you use it the first time-it indeed is a bit different! The UI still has a few quirks(you need to click text fields, etc)..but the editor works stable and reliable 99% of the time!
Overall, tejpWriter is a great editor for creating reviews and other plaintext files that can live with automatical line wrapping(so DONT use it for creating c files). The program is incredibly fast(it even keeps up with me using my external keyboard in landscape mode) and is opensource and free! If you edit many files, take your time to understand the extra features of the program-the time is well invested!
