[REBOL] Re: Script Editor.. I need a script editor; Notepad se

From: tim:johnsons-web at: 28-Oct-2001 7:22

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 ( 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 thoroughly tested. -- Tim Johnson <[tim--johnsons-web--com]>
