I resubscribed!

Gregory Pietsch
I resubscribed to the list to participate in Jim Hall's GNUish project.

I realize that I haven't upgraded edlin since 2010. I have the sources
for 2.15 but Sourceforge locked me out of the project for some reason
and I haven't been able to log in there. Anyway, it is rated 5 stars out
of 5. ;-)

If anyone has anything they would like to contribute for edlin, send me
your sources as I am the new (old) maintainer!

I sent Jim Hall my version of the Unix command 'cat' for the GNUish
project.

The cat command concatenates files and prints them to standard output.

OPTIONS:

-b, --number-nonblank          Number all nonblank output lines, starting
                                with 1.

-e                             Equivalent to -vE.

-n, --number                   Number all output lines, starting with 1.

-s, --squeeze-blank            Replace multiple adjacent blank lines with a
                                single blank line.

-t                             Equivalent to -vT.

-u                             Ignored; for Unix compatability.

-v, --show-nonprinting         Display control characters except for
                                linefeed and tab using '^' notation and
                                precede characters that have the high
bit set
                                with 'M-'.

-A, --show-all                 Equivalent to -vET.

-E, --show-ends                Display a '$' after the end of each line.

-T, --show-tabs                Display tab characters as '^I'.

--help                         Print a usage message and exit with a
                                non-zero status.

--version                      Print version information on standard output
                                then exit.

On systems like MS-DOS that distinguish between text and binary files,
'cat' normally reads and writes in binary mode.  However, 'cat' reads in
text
mode if one of the options '-bensAE' is used or if 'cat' is reading from
standard input and standard input is a terminal.  Similarly, 'cat'
writes in
text mode if one of the options '-bensAE' is used or if standard output
is a
terminal.

Welcome back!   :-)

(Horrible joke omitted. Bad pun and then some, ugh.)

Are you sure you meant "2.15" [sic]? It seems it's already available:

* https://sourceforge.net/projects/freedos-edlin/files/freedos-edlin/2.15/
* http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-stuff/freedos/files/dos/edlin/

I'll mirror anything newer to iBiblio for you/us, if you need it.

Anyways, they are under new management, and (IIRC) asked people to
change passwords for security reasons. I'm sure you could nag someone
there to help you. Or try this:

* https://sourceforge.net/auth/forgotten_password
* https://sourceforge.net/auth/recovery_support

No comment!   :-)

I haven't used it lately, no. So I can only come up with (absurdly
sarcastic) feature requests.  ;-)
