ObjEd stands for Object Editor. It's the working title for my project to create a different kind of editor .

Prototype now available

I'm not sure how to describe it, really. The best way to find out is to download the prototype and try it out. At this point it does nothing useful, but you can get a sense of the look-and-feel of the program, and you can send me your comments, if you're so inclined.

System requirements

I haven't thoroughly investigated, but I believe you'll need:

  • Python: at least v1.3, with the Tkinter module
  • Tcl/Tk: at least v8.0
  • long filename support

What does it look like?

Okay, you want screenshots, you got screenshots. Well, one anyway. I'm not sure I see the point, since the pictures are almost as big as the download package -- plus the fact that how the program acts is at least as cool as how it looks ... but the people have spoken.

Please send comments to Matt Gushee <mgushee@havenrock.com> If you include 'ObjEd' in the subject line of your e-mail, it will make my life a little easier.


Not a snake, but a great object-oriented scripting language. I've seen Python referred to as "Perl done right." Personally I find Python's clean syntax very helpful in staying focused on the goals of the program.


A great programming language for rapidly developing graphical applications. Well, to be more exact, it's a Tool Command Language with a GUI ToolKit. Originally developed at Sun Microsystems, Tcl/Tk has traditionally been used mostly on UNIX systems, but it also runs on Windows and Macintosh, and is becoming popular for platform-independent applications.
