Master Spy

Master Spy is an enhanced editor for text files and programs originally written by Ark Distribution (Applied Research Kernal).

It is based on their earlier Spy editor.

Its advertised features are:

  • between one and five several 'views' into the same file in separate windows
  • windows for text views (multiple display of different file positions) with editing in every view
  • Editing of both text and binary files
  • 'Lazy Screen' update (Keyboard input has higher priority than screen update)
  • Fully written in assembler
  • Single key press commands and "F3"-menu

Master Spy is an ideal editor for the "original" QL due to its heavily optimized screen refresh. Comprehensive block commands make it extremely useful for assembler programmers.
