[REBOL] Re: Script Editor..

From: mh983:yaho:o at: 31-Oct-2001 8:29

As long as we're naming our favorite editors....check out jEdit ( It's written in Java and runs well on Windows and Linux. It's naturally more resource-intensive since it's Java, but runs fine on a PIII or Athlon, but the more memory the better. I think of jEdit as a usable emacs, and is expandable with java instead of lisp. It is extremely customizable, is not a java-ide but a general purpose editor, and has a wide array of plugins so you can determine what features it has. It's free and open-source, and macros can be written in Java, so it's great for anyone who programs in Java to make money, but also uses other languages too. It supports syntax highlighting for many languages, and I submitted a file for REBOL highlighting/formatting that will be in the next release. It has language-bindings for java, c, c++, eiffel, perl, python, ... too many to name. It supports code folding (hiding blocks of code), a console plugin for executing system commands (such as running your REBOL script), all keyboard shortcuts can be redefined, colors can all be changed, supports multiple registers for copy/paste, as well as appending to the clipboard, supports regular expressions for search/replace, and has a very active mailing list. It's definitely worth a look. mike
