Xwpe is an integrated programming and debugging environment similar to
Borland's Turbo C and Pascal family. It has many features including
the ability to start many compilers, linkers and debuggers from a
menu-based interface or using keystrokes.
Syntax highlighting is included for many programming languages, and
any compiler and debugger can easily be used by the program. When
compiling from within xwpe, errors in the source code can be jumped to
and swiftly corrected. Variables and the stack can be easily displayed.
Setting and unsetting breakpoints can be done directly within the
source code.
Although it is designed to be a tool for programmers (when invoked as
wpe or xwpe), it can also be used as an easy to learn text editor
(when invoked as program 'we' or 'xwe').
