I am a big fan of editplus, it loads up instantly. has the about the best approch for multidocument editing, with its tab strip. It's syntax highlighting is extensible, and there are syntax files for every launguage i've ever needed to code in. You can set up macros(like to run perl code in a cmd console, or compile and execute the current java file), preview HTML (and HTML templates).

In my opinion though, its best feature is the FTP menu, i never need to use another application for ftp when i use this, cause you can open and save to a list of FTP sites you define, automatically.

For some code however, i prefer gvim for windows, especially for large files with complex regexes, POD, here docs. Vim's syntax highlighting is second to none.

On unix i use gvim or vi.

    I've found the editplus ftp very good, certainly quick and convenient. But I have sometimes had cause to bless the automatic mirroring of all my uploads which webdrive does without my asking...

Tanktalus is trying to figure out how to get a case-insensitive match between straße and strasse to return true in perl :( fc doesn't seem to do it, either, unless I'm doing it wrong.
[LanX]: ß,ss
[LanX]: nope
[LanX]: /.*(?:ß|ss).*/
[hippo]: How are you doing the match? Regex, index, eq or something else?
[choroba]: fc $s1 eq fc $s2 I guess
[Tanktalus]: hippo: I don't care, I just want to prove it can match correctly compared to, say, ILIKE / UPPER / LOWER in postgres :)
[LanX]: is there a unicode convention that ß is ss ?
[Tanktalus]: LanX: yes :) I haven't tried java, but I have this match working in its bastard cousin, C# :) I just thought perl's unicode support would get me there :)
[LanX]: I have my doubts, IMHO its a workaround if the glyph is missing
