Downloading the executable program exaEdit

Moechten Sie diese Seite lieber in Deutsch lesen?

Ready for use!

By clicking in the following table exaEdit will be downloaded as executable program with the name exa-VVV-BBB-SS. Here VVV means the version number (for instance 02d), BBB means the operating system (aix, l32, l64, sun, win) and SS stands for the language (de, en). An example is exa-02d-l32-de for the version 02d for Linux (32-Bit) in German language. Of course, Windows versions have the additional suffix .exe.

1 The german and the english version of exaEdit differ only by 1 byte. You may convert one version into the other and vice-versa. The procedure is described here in the section "Language versions".

2 The specification in the column "Linux kernel at least" means that exaEdit will presumably not run in a Linux system whose kernel has a lower version number. You could then try to compile the editor from the source program by yourself.

32 or 64 Bit?


Although exaEdit for Windows was produced in a 32-bit system it will run without any problems in 64-bit systems as well.


In 64-bit linux systems you may use instead of the 64-bit version of exaEdit the 32-bit version as well if certain prerequisites in the system are fulfilled. Usually certain packets must be installed.

The error message you may get by invoking the 32-bit version of exaEdit in a 64-bit system differs depending on your linux distribution. Some examples and hints how you could solve the problem will follow. The data will be augmented in the future.

The error message is
   /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory


The error message is
   error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.5: cannot open shared object files: No such file or directory

Remedy consists in the installation of a packet:
   sudo zypper install libncurses5-32bit

The error message is
   No such file or directory

Remedy consists in the installation of suitable programs:
   sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
   sudo apt-get update
   sudo apt-get install libc6:i386
   sudo apt-get install libncurses5:i386
