If you have an old copy of WordStar stuck in a cupboard somewhere,
you can dust it off and turn it into a passable data file editor.
It does both insert and replace mode with columns.  Be sure to specify
"non-document" mode (you can even choose this as default from the
setup program) or it won't save as ASCII.  The older versions are
actually better for this, because they are not bloated by the code needed
for serious word processing.  Through version 6, at least, WordStar works
fine under Windows, either full-screen or in a DOS window.
