VEDIT is a general purpose editor and a multi-function conversion tool. It is designed for text preparation, program development, and editing large database, mainframe, and binary (hex) files. It can edit in ASCII, EBCDIC, Hexadecimal, and Octal, and supports variable-length and fixed length database records. Patch a corrupted database file, convert a huge mainframe file to a Windows/DOS text file, translate between ASCII, EBCDIC, ANSI, and custom character sets, examine a Postscript file, perform a last-minute search and replace function on a 400 Megabyte file, or search/replace a thousand files. As a text editor, VEDIT is intended for both program development and text preparation. It is ideal for writing programs, HTML, and lengthy documents such as reports or manuscripts.
