Install Message Editors

Installing message editors for use by Synchronet terminal users is very similar to installing doors.


These are the different types of message editors supported by Synchronet for Windows (fewer varities supported in Unix):

  • 16-bit DOS using FOSSIL I/O (most common)
  • 16-bit DOS using COM/UART I/O
  • 16-bit DOS using Standard I/O (e.g. for WWIV)
  • Native using Standard I/O (e.g. vi, pico)
  • Native using Socket I/O (none known to exist)
  • JavaScript (preferred)
