in reply to Text Editors

I generally use vi. On Windows I'm using a small editor called NoteTab Pro, which is nice, but I'm mainly going with it of old habit and because I spent $10 buying it back in the 90s and want to get the most out of that money :)

I'm wondering, though, why has no one mentioned using ActiveState Komodo? I haven't tried it in quite a while, because I didn't like the version I got then, but certainly there's got to be some Komodo users here?

    Yeah I've been using activestates komodo (for linux though it comes in both windows and linux flavors) since around 1.x when work found it a worthy enough editor to buy for us.

    It has tons of neat features but is kinda resource hungry if you are just after code highlighting.

    Though not unique to komodo my favorite feature is the whitespace view because I hate when you see whitespace before code that would match /\s{2}\t\s\t{2}/;

    It's not OSS but IMHO it's worth a look.

    When I'm looking for a text editor, I generally don't go for a full-blown IDE. I don't need project management from my text editor (or any of the other features that come with an IDE), and I prefer not to pay for my text editor. So I'm using SciTE on Windows, and mi on OS X. Personal preference, of course.

      I misphrased a bit. I assumed the intention of the question was what is being used to edit perl code, and supposed that some people use Komodo for this. Mostly out of curiosity if/how/why people use Komodo, as I'm with you on what features I want from my text editor (generally).
