Control Key and H key = backspace/delete key. In the old days (jeez
here it comes...) it would print this way on hardcopy display devices
that did not backspace and clear the characters being deleted.
Computers are a passing fad and can be ignored.
I still have copies of it archived on CD somewhere...
WordStar v1, v2, v3, v4 and v4.5, I believe.
Never cared for DOS Word, but it seems to have taken over the Windoze
world. Took forever to 'forget' the typing conventions of WS.
Then some crafty programmers editor known as QEdit retaught my fingers
their errant ways. Want a copy of CPM? Corona DOS v1.05? <g>
Yes, it was fast, compact (63k I think), fully customizable (it
altered the executable with your mods), and would fit on a 5 1/4 low
density floppy WITH bootable MS-DOS. I used it for well over 10
years. The programmer is/was local, and lived in Marietta, GA -
I believe they had a version of that on the System 34/36 and AS-400s
at IBM, for whom I worked briefly in the late 80's - right before the
big 'downsize'. Last in, first out. <g>
I wouldn't even want to count the hours I have spent over the years
keeping up with various programming languages and operating systems -
only to have them disappear almost overnight.. I have so much
obsolete crap in my head, there is no room for more.
I've gotten to the point I hate technology - and am sorry I ever spent
a minute learning anything about it - I would have done far better,
career wise, to have stuck with working on Mercedes'. :-|
Oops... Off topic rant... <g>
I seem to recall that M$ over-rode that convention in their fu^Hine
Word product line and it now opens a dialog to place a hyper-link. I
could be wrong, it may be ^k which is commonly "kill to end of line".
All I know is that when trying to use Wei^H^Hord I end up having to
close that stupid dialog whenever typing speeds up and keystrokes
become more or less automatic.
