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

Hello Joel,

Definitely! I used ConText which is (of course :-) ) free, but a bit sluggish (Pentium MMX 233, 96 MEG RAM) and not overly customizable to my taste. Zeus is although (almost) free, it is very Windows-ish in its functionality and behavior. Ultraedit is commercial, TextPad is (AFAIK) too. gVIM is far from the puritanity of vi: it has real GUI, you can bind standard Windows keys if you like (Ctrl-X, -V etc.), supports wheel mouse, has incredible customizability and automation support (its numeric parametrizable movement/modification commands are charm). Syntax coloring works, too. You can make 'folds' i.e. outline view with several methods :manual, indentation-dependant, markers or cleverly assembled own regex. EMACS is BIG ! gVIM 6.0 exe is just above 1 meg, EMACS is over 4 megs, not to say about the whole installation (9 megs versus 70 megs ! , although both can be further slimmed). Just to mention: Vim won this year's Linux Journal Readers' Awards (hands down) in the editor category (in the development environment category EMACS was the champion). -- Best regards, Geza Lakner MD mailto:[geza67--freestart--hu]
