Yes, and in fact I mentioned it in my first steam-of-consciousness draft of my posting, then deleted it before I hit "send". Brief was the first editor for DOS that I thought was worth a sh*t, circa the early 90s. It was about the only really pleasing tool in the whole hateful MS environment of the day. (I bet if I dig deep I've still got the diskettes in a box somewhere.)
