in reply to Editor / IDE Consolidation

GNU Emacs with ``Vigor'' vi-emulation is fast becoming my favourite text editor. Elisp is the big win here, letting you customize just about anything you'd like to about the editor, while Vigor emulation keeps your fingers on home row most of the time.

Emacs also integrates quite closely with any revision control system you're interested in (and if it doesn't, it's about to: see ``Elisp'', above).

And then there's iLisp. Mmm.... Every Perl programmer should know at least a little bit of Lisp, if only to be able to use map properly.

Still awfully bloated, though... even without GUI components compiled in, my emacs executable weighs in at around 4 megs.
