Don't forget Textadept has a CLI version included as well, just start textadept-curses.exe on the command line :P

For those familiar with vim/nano for working with linux or playing around with it, there are Windows ports available - YMMV

VIM 32/16bit - more info https://www.vim.org/ and https://www.vim.org/download.php

Win32 console executable https://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/vim/pc/vim82w32.zip
The Win32 console version works well on MS-Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista/7. It supports long file names and is compiled with "big" features. It does not run perfectly well on MS-Windows 95/98/ME, especially when resizing the console window (this may crash MS-Windows...).

32 bit DOS executable https://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/vim/pc/vim73_46d32.zip
The 32 bit DOS version works well on MS-Windows 95/98/ME. It requires a DPMI manager, which needs to be installed on MS-DOS. MS-Windows already has one. It supports long file names, but NOT on MS-Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista/7. It is compiled with "big" features.
Not available for 7.4 and later.

16 bit DOS executable https://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/vim/pc/vim71d16.zip
The 16 bit DOS version is the only one that runs on old MS-DOS systems. Only use this if you are really desperate, because it excludes many useful features (such as syntax highlighting and long file names) and quickly runs out of memory.
The last version available is 7.1. Version 7.2 and later are too big to fit in the DOS memory model.

NANO 32bit - https://www.nano-editor.org/

https://www.nano-editor.org/dist/win32- ... 347243.exe (just the single exe works)
