I’ve been eagerly watching Liam Allan’s open source ILEditor mature into a very convenient tool that I can turn to whenever I have a quick development task to perform and I don’t have an active RDi session open. So I was thrilled to learn about his plans for the next major release!
The beauty of ILEditor is that it starts up quickly, performs quickly, and lets me return to whatever else I was doing. For example, I recently used it to copy and send some CL code to a client while I was on vacation. So fast!
ILEditor is a free, easy download. It’s worth having if only to see source members without having to go into a terminal session.
Then you can edit and save . . . so simple, easy, and convenient:
Plus, it offers an easy way to clean up your spool files AND has short cuts to ACS.
In addition to being a useful addition to an IBM i developer’s toolkit, ILEditor is perfect for developers who are new to IBM i and feel overwhelmed by RDi’s full-featured functionality.
Simply great stuff!
