After the search character or string is input and Enter is pressed, the search will be performed from the beginning to the end of the text. If the match is found, it will be located at the top of the screen.

To continue searching using the same pattern press CTRL+Q.

~                                                         ~
~                                                         ~

To save current text into a file, press S, and the cursor will go to the filename editing field. Type the desired name and press Enter. The file will be saved with the specified name.

Note:
File name editing will ignore certain keys: INS, DEL, BS
The corrections are made by Space and cursor keys and .

To exit the editor, press the Q key.

To quickly exit the editor and save the currently edited file, press the F10 key.

Note:
When exiting with F10, there is no request to save the file and to confirm exiting the editor.

Notifications and error messages

When there's not enough memory to edit the opened text file, the following message is displayed:

Buffer full

In this case only the partially loaded file can be edited after pressing any key. And only a part of the file will be saved, so it's advised to choose a different name when saving the edited file.

Note:
When the buffer is full, further editing will not be possible!

In case of disk errors, the editor displays the following message:

Disk I/O error: ([A]bort,[R]etry,[I]gnore)

Using Abort will return to the editing mode. You can also retry saving or loading the file by selecting Retry. Using Ingore will ignore the error, but may lead to corrupted file being saved or loaded.

Note for the experienced programmers:
The editor disconnects the classroom network (if there is one) and sets (38h):=0C9h; upon exit. Network is not enabled upon exit and the 38h vector is not restored.

MYSTERY-soft wishes you a pleasant work !!!
