Our web site to download a copy of Flex/EDIT is located at

And yes, you can work with your code in Flex/EDIT without being connected to
an AS/400.  For a TCP/IP connection, you should rely on whatever file
transfer function (most people have this built in to their router) you
currently use  to move the files between your PC and the AS/400. This in no
different than the routine you would normally go through when performing any
other file transfer. You can then use Flex/EDIT to edit your source files;
you could even download the files on to a diskette at work  and take them
home to another PC or laptop.

After the transfer, simply name PC copies of AS/400 source members with
proper PC file extensions so Flex/EDIT can provide customized coding tools
when you open the files for editing.    For example, use ".RPG" for RPG/400
programs, ".RP4" for RPG 4 ILE programs and ".CBL" for COBOL

FYI, an automated TCP/IP transfer function is the top priority for the next
major release of Flex/EDIT and Flex/DESIGNER.

Subject: GUI source editors

I know there is a fairly popular GUI (WinTel based) source
editor for the as/400 but can not remember the name of it.

I want to say "Flex Edit".  Is that what I am thinking about?
Does anybody know what their web site is?

My primary intererest is for ILE/C, but what ever I get must
also work with OPM/RPG and ILE/RPG and of course CL.

It also must work over a TCP/IP connection and be able to run
under Windows NT v4.0.  Preferably, with NO router required.

I have Code/400 but it seems rather "buggy" (V3R7 and Cume
C7252370) and requires the SNA router.

Any comments are welcome!
