Very nice. I'm not sure how that node slipped by me. It would be nice to include the ones from above that haven't been reviewed yet to your table.

Also, it would be nice to see the "joe" editor added since it is free, works very well and includes many, many features that pico lacks:

  • replace
  • Goto top of file, bottom of file, exact line number options
  • open/resize multiple documents in the same window
  • bookmark gotos
  • has many WordStar compatible keystrokes (yes, I'm that old).
. . . etc. It is available as binary/source from Freeware for Solaris. Ackkkk ... it isn't listed for Solaris 2.8 anymore, hopefully it's just an oversight. The source is still available through the Solaris 2.7 links though. Better yet, the source is available via SourceForge.

I won't go into detail about Open Perl IDE, since it has been discussed pretty well.

    I have used/tried joe over the last two months. I need to add joe to the table.

    The latest versions of pico do have two of the features you found missing:
    replace is cleverly hidden inside of the "Where is" (Ctrl-w) command. To enable replace you have to start pico with at least the -b flag.
    Line number is also cleverly hidden under the "Where is" commnad, once you enter that command the sub menu allows you to move to the exact line number via "Ctrl-t", you also get options for top of file, bottom etc.
