Sorry to have conveyed the impression that I was blaming you, because
that's probably the last thing I would like (dare?!?) to do: my
english must not that good after all...
I just wanted to "suggest the name of an editor you might consider",
the one I use with satisfaction!

I don't think so: it's "just" a general purpose editor that features
(also) TeX and*modes.
Quote:>where does jed live?
Also, it is included in all of most common linux distributions, only
they seem to be exceptionally keen on not keeping it up to date and
feature obsolete versions! Ah, and debian adopts a non standard
placement of files/dirs, because of its strict policies, you know...
in addition to its standard*mode there are enhanced ones not
(yet?) included in the official distro.

It was the popular msdos-based editor/environment for Turbo Pascal and
Turbo C/C++ and other Borland/Imprise products, so I guess the answer
is "no, you shouldn't mention it". I did it because it is one of the
reasons why I got to use it.
