of yedit and zedit
The first yedit was born
in 1985 on a UNIX Sun machine of QWERTY
type keyboard. It was intensively used in a
simulation department thaf I animated (I do not
love the word : "I was the boss", because with
that word, you will suppose "I was a beans
counter"). We develop with my engineers many big
and detailed wargames. Approximately 300000 lines
of code was written with yedit between
1985 and 1994. The functionality's of yedit where
developed in that period. I retained only the
necessary functionality's and not decoration.
Near 1994 yedit was put
on a PC but with Linux with an AZERTY
type keyboard. At those time no coloring syntax,
the speed of the PC where too slow.
Near 2002, with appearence of
free software on Windows, specialy the GNU
was put on Windows.
After a first contact, with the
editors of devzoo, I realised the advantage of
now has an adjustable coloring syntax, and a total
compatibility with g77,
the FORTRAN77 GNU compiler of MinGW or gfortran
with the fixed format.
Now 2 free compilers of
Fortran95 appears, gfortran and
g95. So it is necessary to
develop an editor for the free form of Fortran90,
95, and 2003. So zedit
Since the 12 january 2004 a new version is
now downloadable. This new version have a
completly new graphical interface code inpire of
POO and toolkit like Motif, but with no use of a
toolkit. All the code of the widgets have been
extract from the yedit
code and have been installed in separated files
which are in common for yedit and zedit. This
code is the most identic as is was possible
between the Windows and the Linux version. For
Windows I use the win32API, for Linux : XWindow.
Since the 1 may 2006 you can download
the last version of the package where you can find
*.f files (FORTRAN77 files for g77)
and *.f95 files (Fortran95 files for gfortran
or g95). The functionnalities
are strictly the same but the *.f95 files are
strictly Fortran95 files with all the deleted or
non recommandable methods of FORTRAN77 eliminated,
use of modules and all the new things. In fact I
only use gfortran for Linux and
Windows. gfortran was choose by
Suse10.1 to be the Fortran95 compiler of this
the Yedit package is built
The Yedit package is built with
several layers of freeware and only freeware.
The yedit and zedit
code : 36000 lines of code for Windows and Linux
version (18000 lines for each). The graphical part
of the software and the coloring syntax used and
and only used C and the win32API
for Windows and XWindow for Linux. No Toolkit was
used, compiled with gcc the GNU
C compiler of MinGW. The
functionalities where written in FORTRAN77
compiled with g77 the GNU
FORTRAN77 compiler and the same in Fortran95
compiled with gfortran one of
the GNU Fortran95 compiler. You can find now the
two type of files : *.f (FORTRAN77 files for g77)
and *.f95 (Fortran95 files for gfortran)
for users which have g95 or gfortran.
The functionnalities are strictly the same, but
the *.f95 files are pure Fortran95 files with all
the obsolete things of FORTRAN77 eliminated.
