in reply to What font/screen-color for coding?

Hello giant,

I prefer emacs (available at for linux/unix/win32 and maybe some other operating systems) because of it syntax highlightning (e.g. comments are red, keywords mostly blue, method calls black, variables somehow golden, subs red and the like). I use a slightly adapted .emacs from Steve Ackermann from under Unix/Linux and Win32. As background color, I use a slight grey.

Which font does emacs use? I don't know; some fixed font.

There are some syntax highlightning addons for vi as well. I just don't know where to find them. But I'm sure another monk will know...

Best regards,
perl -le "s==*F=e=>y~\*martinF~stronat~=>s~[^\w]~~g=>chop,print"
