Joy of text is text editor, which includes a powerful ECCE-like scripting language for system tool integration and reusing any machine-readable input.
It recovers easily from crashes, can interface with helper and utility applications, provides many default library commands, macro-scriptability, debugging, includes spell checking, binary conversion routines (for office documents or pdf files), enables tabular text editing, and can deal well with larger file sizes.
