in reply to Perl Editors?

I always plug nedit when this question comes up. It is easy to use and has a small footprint compared to something like Emacs yet it has enough power to be useful. It has syntax highlighting for many languages and reasonable macro functionality. Especially useful is dragging over text with the middle mouse button (it underscores rather than highlights) and that text is pasted to the cursor position (or over text that has been selected with the left button) as soon as the middle button is released. It can also use regular expressions in Find and Replace operations, including captures (accessed via \1 etc. rather than $1).

It is available for most *nix platforms and will also run under Cygwin by all accounts.

Cheers,

JohnGG

    Howdy!

    Yep. It runs find under Cygwin...

    I'm fond of it in the Windoze and Unix environments (modulo OSX where I use BBedit).
