zip12 The Write Stuff 128 NEW

The Write Stuff 128 by Busy Bee Software (1988) - This has to be the ultimate word processor for the Commodore 128.  There are so many features and capabilities that it would take pages to list them, so I'll just link to the Reference Manual so you can check it out yourself.  Here is a quick overview pulled from the reference manual:

This archive was pulled from a couple sources.  The first souce was from CBM128.COM (which is a great source for all things Commodore 128), and the second source was from a Lemon64 Forum post where a user that goes by "thomcbm64" kindly shared a download link.  In the archive are both the 40-column and 80-column versions, but there is also an additional 80-colum version which I believe (not positive) is version 2.  I can't find anywhere in the program itself where it states it's version 2, but it loads differently than the version 1 (which states it's version 1).

Here is a link to the reference manual, and another to the startup/quick refence

I also recommend checking out this excellent blog post from the amigalove.com website that has good information and an interesting thread of comments.

zip14 ZED 128 v0.77 HOT

ZED 128 v0.77 written by Craig Bruce and released on February 16th, 1993 - Full docs are inside the disk image.

Zed is a text-editor program for the Commodore-128 80-column screen. To use it, just LOAD and RUN the "ZED-128" binary file. Be sure to save it in PRG format.

Here is a summary of Zed's important features:

  • Works with *BIG* text files.
  • 100% unadulterated machine code with high-speed VDC accessing.
  • Uses Burst commands for reading 1571 and 1581 files.
  • Uses a dynamically allocated data structure to hold the editor document and the "Kill Buffer".
  • Will optionally expand TAB characters into spaces while loading a file and compress spaces into TABs while saving.
  • Global search and replace.
  • Range delete and recall.
  • File translation to and from ASCII-CrLf?, ASCII-Lf, ASCII-Cr, and SPEEDSCRIPT character codes.
  • Has a feature for cutting and filling (juggling) text lines to form paragraphs with roughly the same number of characters on each line.

And here is its major limitation: 

  • Has a maximum line length of 80 characters. It will split file lines longer than that.
