    I like TextPad on my Windows PC.
      Wow! Someone else who uses TextPad. It's the best editor you'll ever find for Windows. Don't confuse it with WordPad ot Notepad - this is a full, commercial product that does almost everything emacs does. If you are stuck using Windows, try it out.
        Emacs 20.6 has been ported to Win32... hasn't it?

        Update: Yes, it has. 20.7 has, too. It's what I use.

    I edit under Windows (even my Unix programs), and I quite like ConTEXT editor. It knows about Perl, has lots of features, and it's free.

    Cheers!

    Here is one from CPAN...

    T-Pad

    ...its called T-Pad and is in pure Perl.

    Reason I like it is mostly because it is pure Perl. I fought like hell to get Perl approved by the IT department where I work. I hadn't the energy to do the same bit over again for TextPad. But now that Perl is installed on all the PC's at work, now I have at least an editor aimed at Perl...and don't need any IT approval to run it. Hurrah!

    Also because it is in pure Perl, I can actually add features. It took only minutes to add in a pull-down menu and add some handy Perl one-liners to run Perl Tidy, run pod2html, run PAR, copy *.pl as *.txt for downloading, etc. etc...

    At home I run OptiPerl on Win32 and Nedit on NetBSD Unix. But at work I make do with T-Pad. It doesn't compare to OptiPerl, or even Nedit, but it sure beats the daylights out of Notepad, WordPad and their ilk.

    I used vi for many years and then one day, I learned Emacs. After that I never turned back to vi unless absolutely necessary. I am surprised to see the low % of emacs here so far.
