Projects / Zoinks


Zoinks is a programmer's editor and development environment for Unix/X11 systems. The editor has features similar to Mac text editors like MPW and CodeWarrior. It also has some features for HTML authoring. Zoinks supports comparing/diffing files and directory hierarchies. It also supports inputting and editing multi-byte text (e.g. Japanese and other Asian languages).
