Gobby — network text editor

Filed under
Software

There seems to be a common belief that programmers usually work alone. This is completely untrue. Most of them create applications in teams exchanging ideas and sharing the source code through the Internet (or the Network in the office). There are some complex version control systems but they are suitable for large projects. What if you have a small project? Here comes is Gobby. With the help of this little app you can edit files together with other people or create new ones. Everything works remotely.

Using Gobby

Firstly you have to run the editor. Probably you will find it in the system menu. If it isn’t there, you can run it by typing “gobby” in the terminal. Gobby works in the centralized environment where one copy of the program runs as a server, and the others are clients which have to connect to the server. To create a new server session you have to click on the “Create session” icon.

PC-MOS/386 was first announced by The Software Link in 1986 and was released in early 1987. It was capable of working on any x86 computer (though the Intel 80386 was its target market). However, some later chips became incompatible because they didn't have the necessary memory management unit. It had a dedicated following but also contained a couple of design flaws that made it slow and/or expensive to run. Add to that the fact it had a Y2K bug that manifested on 31 July 2012, after which any files created wouldn't work, and it's not surprising that it didn't become the gold standard. The last copyright date listed is 1992, although some users have claimed to be using it far longer. Read more
