in reply to Text editor modifications

I don't use it personlly myself, but I herd HomeSite was very good. It's been said by some of my friends that's it the only editor on PC systems that comares to BBEdit, which is the number one text editor on the Macintosh system (me is a Mac guru).

I too wasn't very optimistic about learning vi, but I realized that it's the one editor that's guarenteed to be on all unix systems. That and all the good things I hear about it from Unix gurus. So I cracked down and learned it. Now Vim is the only editor I will use on any *nix system. (I'll settle for VI if Vim is not available though :)
Give it a shot, it's really not that hard. Once you learn, you'll never turn back...

    I don't do much heavy-duty perl programming, but a lot of run of the mill CGI stuff. Homesite is my editor of choice (for any language) when I'm in Windows. With Linux I use KDE's Advanced Editor. Both of these programs had color coding and smart indenting.
