    So basically you want to create a text editor that does not require the windows to work. I assume then that you are looking for a dos gui tookit for python.I unfortunetly do not know of such a toolkit but it is worth a look. They may be plenty of C gui tookits that you can interface with using Python though.

    Hi!

    Have a look at curses. Here you can find a short manual, and here are some sample-applications.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Thanks mawe. after searching a lot through books and the net i have found that curses does not work on windows. though there are some other modules like Wconio, console and wcurses which work on windows.
