Does anyone know of an editor for Windows95 that has parenthesis highlighting like Xemacs does? I'm writing scheme and I *really* need an editor that can *highlight* the area between matching parentheses when the cursor is moved on one of the parenthesis involved.
I know lots of editors blink the other parenthesis when you write the corresponding one, but I'm looking for one where merely moving the cursor over a parenthesis will higlight the corresponding one. Thanks so much!!!

In MS DevStudio, Ctrl-] finds the matching brace. Not what you're after, but better than nothing...

I like "The "Semware Editor"  (known as TSE).  It does nothing and has no features at all---except for a macro programming language.  That is enough!  Every nice thing about the program is written in its macro programming languange (and there are lots!)..  No spell checker?  Someone wrote one for it in the macro language.  need a pop-down ASCII chart?  Someone wrote one for it etc.   It doesn't have built in syntax highlighting, but someone wrote a program to do so.  It ships with this and many other programs--without them it is useless.  You can customize the programs and therefore the editor to you needs.   Its really a wonderful editor.

Hi Nietod,

Does the editor you mention do the parenthesis higlighting thing as it is shipped? Do you know where I could download it? Thanks,

I beleive the editor is not shipped with the highlighting macros.  but they are available from their web sight.  You might want to talk to them about this before Ordering.  (This is a comercial product, you have to buy it, but it is not expensive, about $100)
The highlighting macros do much more than Parenthesis.  You indicate what language you are using (if possible, it will figure this out from the file name) and it will "colorize" differnent elements of the language, like comments, keywords,  c++'s braces etc.  You can customize this for languages that it doesn't yet support.  It also has other freatures for programmers, like a search option where it shows you a list of functions in the file and you can move to these functions.  Again it does this for different langiuages and you can customize for new languages.  

I can not find my manuals right now (I use its one line help) So I can't give you a number for them.  Its "the Semware editor" by the SemWare corporation.  You probably can find them on the web somewhere.  If not let me know and I'll look for the manuals.

I use UltraEdit. You may want to look at it also.

I use emacs in win95. I don't know if xemacs is also available for
win95, but emacs works just fine.
