I have been looking around in ports and the web and asking around for a test
editor for FBSD. Something designed with coding in mind. I currently use
UltraEdit (www.ultraedit.com). It has syntax hightlighting, multiple files
open, editable pull down menus, compiler output window, spell checking, and
countless other features. I can't find anything that comes close. I
know, I know .. use emacs. Ok, let me spend all my free time messing with
emacs to get it to do what I want, plus it doesn't have the pretty GUI. I
know that GUI isn't everything .. but when it comes to coding ANYTHING that
slows down my thought processes is BAD.
I have found one such program that (after talking with the author) is a
clone of UltraEdit - but like all free software, it is incomplete and
The other suggestion that everyone throws at me is WINE.... and what can I
say ? "If I wanted to be running windows programs I would be using windows -
after all I did buy the damn thing". So as you can see WINE (although a
good program) is not a option for me.
If you have the time and really want to know what I am talking about here -
you really need to check out UltraEdit .. it is the way a coding environment
should be, totally language independent.
Thanks for all the help..
