I see people screaming vim this, emacs that, textpad ... I say rm'em all. When I'm in shell, I stick to nano/pico or easyedit. When i'm not, I use jEdit. I used to use ultraedit, but rm'ultraedit, jEdit rocks my world.
in reply to perl script editor you prefere?
When in shell, i will use vi if absolutely desperate, but I really dislike it (mostly cause when i'm in shell, a lot of the time it's a remote connection).
