I use vim/gvim and love it. It was a bit of a learning curve for
me, but I understand that that latest ver (6.0, I'm using 5.7) has
the option of "modeless mode". Pardon the oxymoron. I've hacked
a number of "C" "macros" for rebol with great satisfaction, and
have added curent Rebol words to rebol.vim (syntax file).
On the other hand, I am now learning Xemacs. I would guess that
some in the Windows environment might find emacs a little easier
to learn. Xemacs/emacs is kind of a "mini-os". It actually supports
a lisp interpreter for high levels of customization.
Learning lisp for a rebol programmer shouldn't be a "far reach".
I believe that Sterling uses it.
While I'm at it, I want to mention Boxer (www.boxersoftware.com).
For Windows Editors, it is IMHO the best single-developer programmers
editor. It is just wonderful, and an immediate fit for one familiar
with the MS-Windows environment. It is also extremely configurable.
And you can switch keyboard sets "on the fly".
The "Windows" version doesn't support macros. The Dos version does.
Boxer/dos can be run from dosemu, and I believe that Boxer for
windows can be run from Wine.
I have set up syntax file for rebol on Boxer, too, but is not
