The KEDIT editor from Mansfield Software Group (www.kedit.com) can
selectively hide or view lines. It has a subset of REXX as its macro
language. I have a simple macro that hides all lines in a SAS log except for
lines that contain error messages. Really a very nice programmer's editor.
Runs on Windows, also has DOS versions. It is based on the mainframe XEDIT
editor, which, I believe, is quite similar to the ISPF editor; but it also
has capabilities beyond XEDIT.
