Edit UNIX hosted Files On Windows

FTP-Editing is an alternative to using expensive X server products (like Exceed, Hummingbird) on Windows clients, or terminal based editing using telnet or remote login.

With the FTP-Editing, one can continue to use the native Windows CRiSP interface, while editing files on UNIX hosts. When using FTP-Editing, CRiSP will download the file to the local Windows workstation and save the file back on the UNIX server with the correct format etc, in a seamless integrated fashion.

FTP-Editing is extremely useful for editing files over slow modem connections. As all editing is performed locally, there is no perceived sluggishness of a slow modem line. FTP-Editing allows one to continue to edit the file locally, e.g. on one's notebook, even if the network connection is down - uploading the files when the connection is back up.

With CRiSP's multi-backup facilities one gets added security because backups are saved locally - i.e., in case of an error, one can compare their changes or look at the files in the backup area.

CRiSP's FTP-Editing supports operation through firewalls, proxy servers, and provides for automatic logging in and quick site selection.

"CRiSP is the only UNIX text editor I've seen that would allow a DOS/Windows user to be immediately productive. But it also has a seemingly unlimited list of power-user features. I like it so much at work that I bought it to use at home (under Linux)."
