This is a port of the dme editor from the old 68k DICE package, to OS4 PPC.
Original by Mathew Dillon the source was released to aminet some years ago.

It was always my favorite editor, simple and fast.

The original readme from the DICE source release is included in the archive.


Copy the contents of S/ to S: and put dme somewhere in your path, eg. C: or
The script dme.rexx will open a new window in an existing dme if one is started,
useful if launching from DOpus. Allows to copy text between files.

Updated menus to use NewLookMenus.

Saving to existing files now preserves protection bits

 errm I forget...


Up the filename limit from 64 to 1028 (should be enough :-)). This means
the save path is no longer truncated when loading files with long paths.

Fix a couple of compiler warnings.

Fix a bug where long lines or lines with tabs could loose characters when
exceeding the limit of 256 characters.

Extend the above limit to 1024. Loads more memeory available ona typical
OS4 setup, no need to stick to A500 limits!

Import source from 68k original and converts to OS4


Perhaps modify to use unlimited line length.
Check for existing DME on startup. (Can be done with Arexx, but would be
nice to have it built in)
