ZWIN7 is the new version of ZABED (text editor for PC in the DOS environment)  and it now works in Windows 7 environment in a graphics window.
It is advised to invoke using a SHORT CUT bringing up a blank session. A file can opened using the Mouse {MENU-File + Open} or the keyboard short cut (CTL-O). The standard explorer open file dialog box pops up.

NOTE:  Saved files are in the text format with CR-LF separating lines. If one wants to convert to a UNIX format, use the utility function ToText.exe
