MM Edit

A Windows editor for the Maximite and MicroMite.

The Original Maximite is a small and versatile computer running a full featured BASIC interpreter with 128K of working memory.

It will work with a Composite Video or standard VGA monitor and PC compatible keyboard and because the Maximite has its own built in SD memory card and BASIC language you need nothing more to start writing and running BASIC programs.

The Micromite is a single chip solution designed for embedded systems. It's Basic syntax is much the same as it's big brother although it doesn't have the graphics or file system support.

The Colour Maximite 2 is the latest version based on a Microchip processor. Running on a STM32H743 processor, it has 512k program memory and 5MB general memory.

The worldwide shortage of chips has dried up supply of Microchip chips but, fortunately the PRi Pico seems to be readily available.

Peter Mather has succeeded in porting MMBasic over to the pico chip so we have the picomite to continue the journey.

Further information is available from:

MMEdit was created to simplify writing applications for the Maximite computer.
The first versions of MM Basic required line numbers, something that I was happy to leave behind when working on my PC!
Since MM Basic version 3.0, line numbers are no longer required and it has a full screen editor, so the original reason for creating MM Edit has diminished.

Being able to write code on your PC and easily transfer the files between the PC and Maximite is still a good reason for using MM Edit.

Since version 3.5.17, MMEdit can use TeraTerm as the VT100 terminal. TeraTerm is a far superior VT100 terminal than MMEdit's built-in version.

Version 3.6.0 added support for the Micromite Plus.
Version 3.7.0 added support for the Micromite eXtreme.
Version 4.0 added support for the new Colour Maximite 2.
Version 5.0 is a complete rewrite introducing a different way of doing things, and a lot faster.
