FreeStyle Text Editor
« on: August 06, 2021, 04:55:56 AM »
A few years ago a programmer calling himselve Tron, created a new Mac OS 9 text editor based on WASTE 2.1. I think it was at 68kmla where he did the main work. The interresting part is that it can handle UTF 8 and UTF 16 and is changing the line ends automatically, plus a few more things, known from office suites like RTF, images and more.

Sadly the download at a hosting service is long gone and FreeStyle seems to be nowhere available. Thus I am uploading it here for everybody.

Do want make new version with different name, because there is another FreeStyle program:

I bought my first new Mac when OS X 10.1 released. And I bought that Mac because it had Mac OS 9 too. And I bought my first 68k Mac when Apple stopped PPC Macs.
