Getting back into writing code.

I finally found some code that I wrote ages ago that I’ve been wanting to go back into and mess with in order to improve functionality, and make it more user friendly. It’s a text/rtf editor that I wrote many years ago to help mod the game Freelancer, it supports opening and saving Freelancer save game files and other formats, including normal text and rtf. I’d like to support opening and editing of PDF files, but I’m not sure if I can do that, as it’s normally tied to non-free software. But, with that said, I’m going to poke around the net and see what I can see in terms of open source code that I can hopefully integrate into the editor to make it more useful.

I don’t expect, or want, the editor to become yet another open office clone, nor do I have the coding chops or manpower hours available to do that. But I do hope that I can make it useful for other than just editing a very specific set of file types.

I suppose we’ll see where it goes.
Thanks for reading 🙂
