Editors are like religion once you have a favorite you defend it like crazy.
I discovered the Basic Reconfigurable Interactive Editing Facility
(Brief), initially sold by Underware? and then Solution Systems, in the
late 80s.? It quickly became my favorite editor.? Eventually Borland
bought it and killed it.
Now I use SlickEdit in Brief emulation mode on Windows and several
versions of Linux.? Slickedit is a great multi emulation, powerful
editor.? I recommend you check it out.
Deep down inside I also have a soft spot for EMACS.
And, BTW, there is a native (not Teco macros) OS/8 version of an EMACS
like editor that can be found here:
I have used it extensively on my PiDP-8/I under OS/8 and I intend to use
it on my real, newly acquired, PDP-8/E when I get some mass storage and
I can run OS/8.

I found files for my favorite DOS editor on an archive

The editor was ETOOL, from Amerisoft.
If anybody wants the files, I'm happy to send them.
