the Editor

You can even tidy up your program listings with an automatic indenting option, and make them pleasing to the eye and more accessible to the brain.

You are able to move through your streamlined listings at high speed, jumping from one label or procedure to the next. The procedures themselves are complete program modules that can be compacted into a single line of your listing by "closing" them.

Wherever possible, the AMOS Professional Editor will call up Help at the touch of a button, whenever you need it.

The Edit Screen
Here is a diagram of the AMOS Professional Edit Screen. There follows a short guided tour of its features.
