OK, so today I reached a milestone with a project I started mid-August. As a little reintroduction to Amiga programming, I fired up AMOS Pro and promptly forgot how to do just about most anything with it. A few days later and it was coming back to me :)

WireANSI is an old-style ANSI editor, used for creating those cool screens you used to see when visiting BBS's (you do remember that, don't you?).

Today's milestone is that my little ANSI editor can now save and load ANSI files. It's not exactly useful, but it's at a point where everything I now do to it will be like icing a cake ;)

It does have some serious limitations though: -
-Fixed 80x25 editing area.
-Loads ANSI files, but only understands colour-change escape codes.
-Doesn't warn you about overwriting files. Be careful!
-Is slow at loading and saving. Real slow.
-'Overwrite' mode editing only.

I've attached a zip of a bootable ADF (but don't, run it from your workbench instead - it's better that way) and a text dump of the source.

Your criticism gladly received :)

Very neat! Even if it's not ready for full time use, it is definitely giving you more programming experience. :D
