Reading .txt & .otl from DOS
- Hi All...

Does anyone know of the easiest way to read UNWRAPPED text (or
outlined documents) while in DOS mode? I have tons of
"Reformatting Tips", but just realized yesterday that DOS' Edit
command does not wrap the text. (DOS is definitely not my
If I get into a bind while in the middle of reformatting, I would
rather not spend the afternoon scrolling right, then left, then

- Hi All...
I believe I have found the answer to my current dilemma...
(NoNags to the rescue... once again... LOL)
I found a DOS editor with, word wrap, hotkeys, macro recording,
and so many more undiscovered features... And get this:
The programs name is Pedit
* I formatted a floppy, including system files...
* Unzipped the latest version of Pedit 4.00 onto that floppy...
* Rebooted into DOS
* And simply ran the "pedit.exe".
User friendly = )
For the record, remember to check out "Alt+F1" once the program
loads to see some common shortcuts and options menu.
Hope this info helps somebody...
