have about ED and your company is WOW! The absolute best editor I
have ever used and you tech support is great. Keep up the good work."

little bug."

Per Isakson, Sweden

"I love ED!!! I just couldn't develop without it!!" 

Mary S. Martin, Golden Starr Software, Inc.

"Everyone must know about this great editor by now."

Glenn Rogers

"I have had a few days now to play with the automatic "end" insertion, I Love It!. I really like the fact that I am positioned on the line below the inserted "end" so I can just keep coding, its Great!

Nev, you never cease to amaze me!"

Randy Hessey, HessComp Consulting Inc.


"I've ... taken on a Java project, which has had 3 previous programmers (one after the other), over a 5 year period, with next-to-no documentation.

Your V4 Project Source tree and class view have been a godsend for finding my way around the layered logic in this historic work I've ventured into!" 

Steve Goschnick, IDEA Lab


"ED is programmer's editor of choice for people who are serious about their craft."

Cal Kaschub


"Just wanted to say that the new Difference Analysis is really slick!"

Dan Schweizer Systems Analyst/Programmer - Lead, Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc.


"Firstly, I have to say that version 4 is fantastic. If asked how v3.8 could be improved, I would have been hard pressed to think of more than a few trivial items but with v4, you have shown that you understand my needs better than I do. I can't wait to start using it every day." 

Steve Beaver, Research US, Inc


"ED has a long and rich development history, with a single, simple goal of delivering to our customers the best programmers editor we possibly can."
