Vimize Author

Post by vrozos » Sun Dec 18, 2011 10:10 pm

Hi guys,

I would like to let you know that I
have made some modifications to the
word processor Author to improve its
functionality. More specifically I
changed the keys that invoke the move
commands when in Edit mode to be more
familiar to vi users (i.e. vimize). The new
layout is:

H,J,K,L: left, down, up, right
arrow up: up
arrow down: scroll down
B: back one word (new)
W: forward one word (new)
/: find

The left, right arrows have been
disabled. Also the R (used to retrieve
text from tape) has been disabled
because its CMP clause is used now to
jump to the new move-back-one-word
command.

The code to move forward and back one
word is in the addresses #2a01 and
#2a30.

I have uploaded a zip file at
the address authorv.notlong.com .
This file includes the tap file, the
symbols of the author code (prepared
with inverse engineering) and the code
of the two new commands.

There is one improvement I would
love to make in the future. It would be
nice to save the program compressed.
Then include a header that decompresses
it and passes the flow to the original
program. Any guidelines, tips, docs on
how to do this would be appreciated.

Cheers

V.
