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)
