in reply to Editor / IDE Consolidation

Brethren,

we use Emacs here at our company for all Perl projects. The decision for it was kind of Top-Down, made by the "pointy-haired-boss" and yet there is still one developer that secretly uses vi. :-)

The reason for Emacs is mainly because of the availability of folding. And because of the unicode support it provides.

Fairly good syntax-highlighting and indentation as well as CVS interaction make it a acceptable solution for developmnet under the Linux OS.

JM2c. YMMV.

Bye

    Folding is now part of VIM as well. Basically any feature you can quote will be ported from one to the other. The only real differences between VIM and (X)Emacs are modal commands vs chording commands and text editor vs kitchen sink debates. Most features fit well into both schemes.
