Multi-Edit on Sale until Dec. 17

Heads-up!

Multi-Edit is on sale at Programmer's Paradise!  The ad looks pretty impressive for anyone in the market for this type of app.

I've been using Multi-Edit since version 5, many years ago. Its original strength (IMO) was its support for Dbase and Clipper programming, as well as a few others.

It has an extensive macro language, and the macro source comes with.

I own the current version, but a few months after upgrading, I discovered that it doesn't support unicode. So, if you try to edit items with, for example, Chinese characters, you get garbage. I wrote to them about this, and they said they had no plans to ever add support for Unicode. Since I now work on a lot of items in China, and other places, this means I only use it infrequently these days.

I don't recomment getting it, because many free editors will do much the same, although perhaps the free ones don't match the breadth of languages supported.

Thanks for your input.  You are right about the plethora of freeware.

I've actually used ME for quite a while (an older version) and I do plan to upgrade.  While it is true that a lot of the features are in free versions- all of them are not, especially packaged in one product.  I've tried quite a few freeware products, and none of them match it; you have to go to a pay product to get the wealth of features in one place.
