The UNIX editor is vi! I use gvim (www.vim.org). It compiles on most
UNIX and you also find binaries for many platform at the vim homepage.
gvim (graphical vi improved) behaves like a normal vi but is highly
configurable, colors you sourcecode (it has syntax files for many language
and you can write your own syntax files) and has many other features.

If you don't know vi you'll hate it until someone sits next to you for two
hours an helps you work with it, but after that you'll love it because you
can do things with it no other editor supports.

vi has to modes, the command mode and the insert mode. After you
started vi you are in the command mode where you can enter commands.
Some of the commands go into insert mode. Press escape for leaving
the insert mode and go back to command mode.
The most important commands are:

:q<enter>  quit
:q!<enter>  quit without saving
:w<enter>  save file
i   insert (then the text you enter will be inserted, don't forget escape)
x  is like delete
X  is like backspace
o  insert a line after this one an go to insert mode
O  insert a line before this one and go to insert mode
dd  delete a line
/<regexp><enter>  search for the regular expression

gvim also has a good manual, just enter :help<enter>

Already know VI, already know how to work with it and obviously hate it.
Most of editors are color configurable, but the way of edition and the files display on ultraEdit is almost what I m looking for as a text editor.
Other suggestions?

You might want to take a look at JEdit. Written in Java (so multiplatform), OpenSource, with lots of plugins to make life easy! (Ok. It is not like UltraEdit, but that is just look&feel, the functionality is there)

I used to work with JBuilder, switched to vi afterwards tried 'J' and ended up with JEdit :O)

http://www.jedit.org/

Don't forget to download the plugins!
