 Front End Processors that allow emacs-like editing in other programs
I'm using a program called fep  (front end processor) which allows emacs-like
line editing from within other unix programs.  This front end is great because
it allows me to use korn shell style line editing within ARC/INFO and ftp.

That's the good news!  The bad news is that it interferes with the graphics
during my ARCEDIT sessions on a Tektronics 4109.  It also shows the password
when used with ftp.

Does anyone know of another front end program that allows for emacs-like
editing from within other programs?

Does anyone know if fep has been updated seen its was written in 1988 by
K. Utashiro at Software Research Associates, Inc., Japan?

Any news is appreciated!

In article <33o5q0$>,
the problem w/ this is that you gotta recompile each program that would
want to use readline.  fep is something that you could use on _any_ program
that didn't have line-editing support already compiled in.
