With this viewer, plain text and binary files can be displayed.
Non-printable characters are skipped.
The following Webstart -button starts the text viewer:
Upon start a small green window appears which acts as a Drag'n drop target for the files to be displayed.
The user needs to drag the file with the mouse and drop it there.
The files will be displayed in read-only text panes.
There are several nifty features which are explained in the help document (Type
F1). The following three features are the most important:
- Advanced search/highlight (Press Ctrl-F or Strg-F).
- Support for ANSI colors
- User definable Web-applications and shell commands which act on text selections. Open context menu with right-click (Right mouse button).
The software requires Java and runs on all
platforms. To avoid Java-webstart, the text viewer can be installed on the
Strap. Then start Strap. Find the button "Plain text viewer"
at the bottom of the start panel of Strap.
