Who could benefit from the programs?

Do the programs work on all system?

Why should I buy the full version of the Editor?


What is the philosophy of programming?

My belief is that there are certain tasks which take a lot of time. Programs in this series are intended to help you do things which might otherwise be difficult or time consuming. Most of the tasks could be done without the editor or its support programs, but some would be very irksome and and in practice very hard to achieve otherwise.

In a nutshell, the theory is this. The user faces a blank page and wishes to do some Internet stuff. If this is writing HTML, the user would be better to use a good WYSIWYG program. But when writing JavaScript, for example, it is usually better to use the Editor. The user knows (at least to some degree) what they need to do, but they use the Editor to make the task easier. Note the key: the User has some idea what they are doing, perhaps from exploring the Tutorial, and the Editor makes the task EASIER.

All programs have been rigorously enhanced by REDUCING  features as much as possible! (Note this is the opposite of normal programming philosophy!)


Who could benefit from the programs?

Not everyone!

If you are learning JavaScript, using the Editor may make your learning task easier, because you have a certain amount of control and you can usually see what the program is doing. The Editor does not contain a database of JavaScript. Normally, you would look at the tutorial or a good book to find what you need.

If you write JavaScript programs quite regularly, then you may find the Editor especially useful.

Yet it is not for everyone! It is written especially for those who write JavaScript code and for those learning JavaScript.


Do the programs work on all system?

The programs are largely designed for Windows 98 using an 800 by 600 screen resolution with normal type. You can check whether the program will work on your system by checking out the Free Editor. If the Free Editor works, then the Full Version will too.


Do the programs have bugs?

Of course not! J

Largely, simple programs do not have serious conflict problems. They tend not to crash. If they haven't got, for example, DLLs, then they can hardly fail to find them! etc.

There is no policy on charging for updates. Although it is ridiculous to make promises for the distant future, in the near future all updates are FREE and if you think you should get an update, just ask! (This means, well I believe there are no significant issues, but if there are, then I will fix them for free, if I can).


Why should I buy the full version of the Editor?

I would buy them if I hadn't written them. I would do this for the following reasons. There are some task which use so much data that they are very difficult to accomplish otherwise.

Secondly, I find the Viewer very useful which is why I probably use the Editor every day. Recently I got back to doing some research on something for which I had a lot of data - all mixed up with broken links! Using the Editor simply as a viewer, I could quite quickly find my way through these documents and get what I wanted. To be honest, I also used TCJM to make the contents pages - because this is the quickest and easiest way to do it. But I could have used the editor! The Editor is much more powerful than TCJM, and a little prettier, but when it comes to doing its specific job of creating TOCs or menus, then TCJM excels. (excels means it does it faster and easier!) So what I am saying here is that the programs have a daily use and actually help to make some tasks EASIER or even possible (or practicable!)

I am writing this using Microsoft Front Page Editor. For a task such as this, a WYSIWYG Editor is so .. so much better (in my opinion). What I am saying is that if you are like me,  and do stuff with Internet files, and write JavaScript then the Editor will be very useful when writing JavaScript. 

If not, it won't!
