Wrote the following:
|Maybe you meant that SPICE doesn't have a built in editor? If that's the
|case, don't be stupid. Including an editor doesn't add anything to SPICE,
|and any self-respecting CLI fanatic knows that the only true editor is
|emacs. Or vi. As long as it's the CLI version, and not the yucky graphical
|version. If you are a real emacs or vi guru, you run SPICE from inside the
|editor anyway, and it would never occur to you to expect an editor to be
|built into SPICE.
|Then there's the wonderful SPICE text output. I started using SPICE before
|graphics terminals were common, and for years all my SPICE outputs came in
|big, beautiful, 80 or 132 column text form, not that horrible
|that's so popular with today's decadent youth. You didn't need glasses to
|read those old outputs, either: the 12 point typeface could be read clearly
|at 30 feet by even the most nearsighted engineer.
|Ahhh, those were the days. You're welcome to 'em.
