Flyspec 3

Flyspec 3 may possibly be the tiniest font ever crafted for the Commodore Amiga. While it may lean towards the whimsical gimnmick rather than practical usage, this font is an intriguing addition to your Amiga font library. Its incredibly small size sets it apart, making it a quirky and fun collectible rather than an everyday typeface. Created with meticulous detail by Sascha Wildner, this diminutive font is sure to bring a smile and a touch of wonder to your Amiga font collection.

Amiga VIM text editor

Vi IMitation. A clone of the UNIX text editor "vi" for the Commodore Amiga. Very useful for editing programs and other plain ASCII text. Based on Stevie (disk 256) with many enhancements such as multilevel undo, command line history, improved command line editing, full vi compatibility (except Q and zn commands), command typeahead display, command to display yank buffers, unlimited line length, ability to edit binary files, file name stack, support for Manx QuickFix, shows current file name in window title, etc. Internal storage structures have been redesigned for optimal speed and memory usage.

Vim has been picked up and continues to be developed to this day. Although the Fred Fish disk is for the Commodore Amiga, Vim has evolved into a multi-platform powertool for everyone. Here is the official Vim homepage. And in a sad tone, Amigascene has run a lovely obiturary for the creator of Vim, Bram Moolenaar.

Version 1.14, includes source.
