Trying to edit a program running RiscOS 3.10

Post by BBCNoob » Sun Jul 14, 2019 12:39 pm

I've got game I'm trying to get working from the HDD, since sadly it keeps looking at ADFS (Floppy).

Using the !Edit app, I've managed to edit a couple of lines. There's over 7000 lines of code.

My question is, is there an editor that'll load up a basic program the correct way, but has search and replace as well, on an Arc?

Doh... I hadn't tried actually pressing the middle button over the text!

F3=Save
F4=Search/Replace
F5=Goto line
other keys do other useful stuff, so useful that I can't remember. :D
