in reply to Favorite or most wanted text editor features?

For me, all what I want in a text editor is

  • Lightweight
  • Fast
  • Provides a good and fast movement trought the text

I don't ask too much to a text editor, just the ability to _edit_ text files.
Hey, i am talking about vi :), but i use joe too.

Some other features, like find the "}" who closes this "{" are great, and very useful, but when i think of it, i think in a programing IDE (Komodo is my favorite to the moment), not in a text editor.
Anyway, that was just my opinion, and EvanK good luck with your project.


Dreams they just disapear into the shadows,
then they become true....
