Qedit/UX is compatible with most versions of HP-UX 10.20 and later.

IMPORTANT: As of HP-UX 11.0, HP has dropped support for block-mode terminals. For this reason, full-screen editing is available in Screen mode or by enabling the Blockemulation option on HP-UX 11.0 and later.

Qedit commands are added to the Redo stack before variable substitution occurs (Set Varsub On) i.e. with the variable name. So, if the variable value changes between the time the command is entered and the time it is retrieved from the stack, the results may be different. It's also important to note that commands related to Redo stack operations such as Listredo, Do, Before can not have trailing comments enclosed in curly braces anymore. The comments are not removed and likely cause a syntax error.

In the examples in this document, we have used HP-UX 10.20 conventions and assumed Qedit is installed in the /opt/robelle directory.
