?? What is the *BEST* Text Editor ??
Posted on 1998-11-09
I am looking for a great text editor for my Linux OS (Redhat Linux Release 5.1 Kernel 2.0.35). I truly loved the text editor on my PC called EDIT (by Microsoft) since it had a line #/column position the cursor was at, you could visibly mark and copy/paste items, etc. I even more so loved the Borland Turbo C++ editor! Color and all.
I have used Pico but it doesn't show the line number my cursor is on, I can't easily mark text and copy/paste, etc like EDIT or Tubro C++ IDE. Is there ANY program for Linux which is a brilliant text editor so that I can do my C programming within? I prefer to have the editor in non-X windows, that is, in the text based mode of Linux not the graphical. This way programming and moving around is faster on my little ole 486.
Ideally, I would love to have an Integrated Development Enviroment (like what Turbo C++ had with its IDE) for GCC so that I can program my code, see the beautiful color for my C commands, cut/paste, and the whole 9 yards. That would be great!
Thanks for any info!
