in reply to 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.

    I wasn't a big fan of the color schemes either, but like everything else in Vim, that too can be customized. For Gvim (non terminal based GTK X app) you can add this:
    set background=dark hi Normal guifg=#ffffff guibg=#000000 hi PreProc guifg=#ff80ff guibg=#000000 hi Statement guifg=#00d000 guibg=#000000 hi Comment guifg=#707070 guibg=#000000 hi Identifier guifg=orange guibg=#000000 hi Constant guifg=#6060ff guibg=#000000 hi Special guifg=#80f0f0 guibg=#000000 hi Cursor guifg=black guibg=red
    to the .gvimrc file in your home dir under Un*x and get my color scheme (which you may not like either :) ).

    I'm not sure where the equivalent windows .gvimrc file is.

    /\/\averick
    perl -l -e "eval pack('h*','072796e6470272f2c5f2c5166756279636b672');"

      I wasn't a big fan of the color schemes either, but like everything else in Vim, that too can be customized.
      Careful with that attitude, or you may end up with
      alias vim="emacs -f viper"
