So now I'm wondering what other file called EDIT.COM I was confusing it with ...

(/me slinks back to my hole ...)

I *think* the "MS-DOS 7" version of EDIT.COM that came with Windows 95/98 was able to run without QBASIC. You may be thinking of that.

For anyone who may care and didn't already know this, the JRHOTKEY and NOBEEP TSRs that you can find in various old archives both fix the double-character and other keyboard issues in EDIT.EXE and other programs. I found these in the course of trying (successfully) to fix Zeliard save game restores (Fn keys act "stuck") today, and I can now use EDIT as well - bonus!
