The KEDIT editor from Mansfield Software Group ( 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.
