Editing features for advanced users
My favorite editor is mcedit (this is gonna cost me lots of XP :).
I like the blue background, and the bright syntax coloring. While it's not perfect, I like it better than the vim Perl syntax color schemes I've seen.
Unfortunately, mcedit is packaged with mc (it's the built-in editor), but you can use the "mcedit" executable (which is mc, but under a different name) to call it directly.
You don't need to read any manual before you know how it works: cursor keys and function keys are easy to use - I don't like :w and :wq. I like F2, enter and F10, Y(es).
I've used MANY other editors, including vim and jed - but I still like mcedit best.
