Re: console editor
in thread console editor
maybe the basic things of what I'd like to do would work with vim.
However, I believe the more advanced features I'd love to have would become nasty hacks.
Basically I'm looking for a possibility to store my passwords on my usb stick.
I'm thinking of things like e.g. some sort of obfuscation by adding to all numbers in the passwords another number - someone who is looking over my shoulders would not see the real password.
Yes, I know there are apps like pwsafe, but maybe I'm addicted to programming....

I could imagine to use curses/pdcurses for the basic things like interfacing with the keyboard/drawing chars to the screen.
Everything beyond this like drawing borders,... seems to me not too much work if there would be a well defined module structure.
There's also the point, that my odyssey through the net surprisingly didn't reveal a useful ui toolkit besides the ones I mentioned in the OP.
So console ui modules in perl could be possibly of some use..
