No syntax highlighting, but my favorite text editor is PFE (Programmers File Editor, Windows OS). You could also take a look at GNU-Emacs.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I use xemacs, it does just about everything you could ever want an editor to do.  Look at www.xemacs.org

I like the "The Semware Editor" (TSE).  it has a very powerful and easy to use programming language that can be used to configure all apects of the editor (menus functions keys, the display, syntax highlighting, process source code, find files, search for errors, and partically anything else you can think of.).  

In addition to being a good text editor, it can be used to edit files in binary mode with or without a Hex display.  it is simply the best (by far) binary editor I've ever seen because it has the full text editor interface when editing in binary.  I.e. you can insert, delete, copy, paste, etc while editing in binary.

Kangroo and Jason, you guys use gcc, right?  You might want to look at

which is a "real" template problem.

my favourite 32-bit console editor is
aurora/32. It's shareware.
Has syntax hilite for several languages (c++, c, html, bat, asm, pas, ...)
It also is full configurable (has own powerful macro language).
I never found a better text-editor for console-mode.

Mhh, gcc doesn't seem to have bitset right, it's std library support is weak :( I'll see if I get SGI stl to work...

Try Helios Software's TextPad. You can define your own custom syntax highlighting, and c++ is a default syntax package. It's shareware but all it does to bother you is popup a self-destructing dialog when the program is run.

You might want to download BloodShed for C++ from download.com.

Search for "C compiler" in download.com and then choose the download BloodShed C++.

Hope it helps.
