Ned, use a single interface to close the active window.
Current version is Ned v1.0 970926.
Ned is a handy AmigaOS commodity that allows you to close the active
window by pressing the ESCAPE key.
Furthermore, it can send intuition events to the active windows or execute
AmigaOS executable files on a press of the ESCAPE key.
There are a few problems that a program like Ned should be able to solve:
Once you start using Ned, you'll wonder how you ever used your computer
without having access to a single interface to quit applications.
- Some programs enter their iconify modes when the user clicks on their
windows' CLOSE gadgets. Whether this behaviour is correct or not is
out the score of this manual, but by using Ned you can send these
kinds of windows user configurable intuition events like RAMIGA Q
to ask them to quit instead of becomming iconified.
- Contrary to the above, there are situations when you want a program
to enter its iconify mode on the press of ESCAPE key. If the program
has an ICONIFY menu item, you can configure Ned to send it that event.
If not, maybe the program has an AREXX port, and you can configure Ned
to execute an AREXX script that asks the program to iconify its window.
- There are situations when you want a program's window to actually
receive the ESCAPE events. As an example, some Bulletin Board Systems
require that the user presses the ESCAPE key twice to enter the system.
You can configure Ned to skip the window of the communication program
that you use to connect to these systems and to send the coming ESCAPE
events back to them.
- Because the events that Ned can send to your programs' windows are
configurable, you can create a single interface for quitting programs,
regardless of the language that they use. You can cofigure Ned to
send your Swedish Amiga program a RAMIGA A that is often used for
quitting Swedish programs.
Ned gives life to the, often not used, ESCAPE key on your keyboard and
allows you to use one interface to quit programs.
