Have you looked at  "THE"  (the Hessling Editor)?   This is a clone of 
the very nice editor on VM/370 and also has a nice link to REXX 
(Regina)  which also came from VM/370.

Very Powerful and between VM/370, OS./2 and now *Ubuntu, I've been using 
the same editor for the last 46 years (and a very happy camper)
