Textpad is very good.

I wrote three different text editors in three different languages over the weekend. Using homebrew solutions is fun.

vi is weird. Especially when you have never used it before.

btw, emacs owns you all. Remeber that contract you signed when you were born? The one they have you sign with a footprint? Yeah. You just gave them your soul. Emacs is like that.

Textpad (www.textpad.com) is the best.

copy con

but seriously I use nano and vi quite a lot, along with gEdit; under windows, usually notepad (or MSVC - notepad can't handle some EOL characters for some reason).

Had a good laugh with copy con. Reminds me of edlin.

For what it's worth I use vi mostly.

my answer is encoded somewherez in my message.

The encoded answer is PICO.

I use mostly Emacs.

The only problem I have is that the Emacs commands are so ingrained into my brain now, that I automatically try to use them with other editors as well. Usually with pretty weird results.

OH TEH NOS!!!

I just found out that what I was using, what I though was vi, was actually vim! OH NOS!

That''s cool though, as long as it uses the same syntax. I just downloaded gvim for Windows, to try it out.

I''d just like to say that emacs is horrible, or at least that version of emacs (is it X-emacs or something) that involves all those stupid mouse+keyboard combination shortcuts.



That''s both of them. emacs and X-emacs both have about 15 million mouse+ctrl+alt+whicheverelsekey commands. Freaky...

I prefer Emacs when booted into Linux (curses version, not that X-Emacs crap ) and Ultra-Edit when booted into Windows. Both of them support the syntax highlighting I so enjoy


For your info, vim has highlighting too...

I like notepad on Windows.
On Linux, I like Pico, because I secure shell into a university server to use Linux.
