What is JavE?
JavE stands for Java Ascii Versatile Editor. JavE is a free Ascii Editor. Rather than for editing texts, it is intended for drawing simple diagrams by using Ascii characters. It is like a graphics editor for editing texts instead of images. Create Ascii art, draw sketches for e-mails, comment source code of programs, diagrams for visually handicaped people, ...
System requirements version 5.0
System requirements version 6.0_RC2 (release candidate 2)
Download the stable version jave5.zip (1064 Kb) or the more experimental version jave_6.0_RC2.zip (3.6 Mb). Create a folder (directory) "Jave". The folder (directory) should not contain space characters (e.g. [drive: Jave]\Program Files\Jave will not work!). Open with a file manager, such as FC/2, one of the zip files and copy the contents to the new folder "Jave". Also make sure to keep the directory structure from the ZIP archive. Create a new program object. Enter at Path and filename: "[drive: Jave]\Jave\Jave.cmd". In the tabpage Session you have to check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "Jave".
The used cmd file
The latest version works well with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS. I have a Jave.cmd file created with the following contents;
@echo off rem Version 5.0 rem set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin rem set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin rem set CLASSPATH= rem [drive: Jave] rem cd [drive: Jave]\Jave rem java -Duser.home=[drive: Jave]\Jave -jar Jave5.jar 2>Jave5_bugs.txt rem Version 6.0_RC2 SET CLASSPATH= SET BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin [drive: Jave] cd [drive: Jave]\Jave java -Duser.home=[drive: Jave]\Jave -jar Jave.jar 2>Jave_bugs.txtI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for Jave with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced with real drive letters. Save the file and rename it to Jave.cmd. This file is copied to the Jave folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs. If you are going to use version 5.0 then you must remove the "rem" in front of the lines and place "rem" in front of the lines from version 6.0. Also be sure to follow the system requirements!
Parameters / options explained
In the file the discussed cmd file (all drive letters are set to C :) and an OS/2 Jave icon: Jave-eCS.zip.
