Edit text OS info

I amn trying to force the command "edit text OS" to fire up notepad rather
than VI, as an editor. No luck so far, any help?

Re: Edit text OS info

I know there is a way to redirect it to use the 'textedit' editor in unix
but I don't think notepad can interoperate with CADDS. If that's useful to
you I can try to figure out how we did it. I haven't seen it used here for
a few years but the know-how probably still exists.

Re: Edit text OS info

I got my answer, thanks Joe H. It works fine now.

I misspoke, using the term "notepad" rather than "dtpad"

OK, back to work now. I am bouncing between PRO and CV these days, the
best of both worlds.

Was this a .caddrc mod?

Re: Edit text OS info

Sorry for not posting the answer to my problem.... here it is:

I assume you are using a UNIX variety. If you type "env|grep EDITOR" the
results will probably show "EDITOR=vi". If you are in a C shell, enter
the
command "setenv EDITOR dtpad" and then enter "cadds5" in the same window.
To make the change permanent, add the setenv statement to your .cshrc
file. There are other EDITOR possibilities depending on your flavor of
unix. "notepad" is a Windows editor.
