The more Javascript programming I do, the more I find the need for my old (mainframe days) editting tricks to exclude, find, replace, change, etc. lines of code in large files.

Can anybody recommend a place to get SPF PC (I think its now called SPF Source Edit) in a shareware (Free) version?

I used to get a heck of a lot out of the ISPF editor - and it would be nice not to have to learn all new tricks.

I would really like to get my hands on a decent (windows OS) version without having to fork out $200.00.

Fritz,

No, that's not it.  The key is the SPF  (or ISPF) which is the old mainframe/TSO edit facility.  Has lots of built in edit macros, etc. that mainframe types get to know really well.  It will allow you to easily indent chunks of code (to get your javascript function indentation nicely organized, for example) and lots of other things with simple line edit commands.

Dreamweaver has a find/replace and also a indention thingy if you hit ctrl+] or ctrl+[ it will indent either way

But its not free, but if you go to ebay you can get a copy of it really cheap or atleast the last time i was scrolling thru there you could. Too bad for me i pad the retail price for it.

DW4.01 that is

If you have some chunk of code, let me know, i can indent it for you no big deal.

A better tool in that vein would be MM HomeSite++: it doesn't have any of the WSYWIG stuff, instead it is a text editor with pretty good capabilities.

I found a number of sites with addons for ISPF, but not the program itself except for some less commonly used OSs.
