QuestionA Win32 console app version of DOS edit.com? Pin

As you probably know, the old 16 bit DOS edit[^] program is still included in 32 bit Windows versions. However, 64 bit Windows does not include the 16 bit DOS utilities.

My main workstation is 64 bit Windows and I'd really like to have a DOS edit clone available to me. Does anyone know of one?

( Yes, I know there are a zillion alternatives. My preferred text editor is Notepad++ and I use Notepad, VS Code, VS, Cygwin ed (yes, really) and one day I might even get round to learning vi. But none of these replicate the experience of edit that I seemed to find so convenient when working in a console window. )

It surprises me that no one has ported or rewritten edit as a 32/64 bit Win32 console app. I've googled but found nothing. Did I overlook it?
