The Atari Action! Editor is a powerful and versatile full-screen text and source code editor for Atari 8-bit computers. It was originally included in the Atari Action! Cartridge released in 1983 Optimized Systems Software (OSS) and not available separately. Now it is available separately for usage outside of the Action! system.



The source code for the standalone version of the Atari Action! Editor was initially provided in 2018  by the AtariAge user Alfred. I adapted the source slightly and incorporated it into the Atari Action! project. This way the standalone executable ACTIONED.COM is now available for download on the disk images of the Atari Action! distribution. This includes dedicated binary versions for different Atari DOS versions. On the DOS versions that have a command line interface, you can start the editor and specify the file to open as an argument.



The manuals for the editor are available as PDF in English (version 2018-11-05) and PDF in German (2016-05-20). It was extracted from "Part II: The ACTION! Editor" of the  Action! manual which is available at AtariWiki.
