What's Your Favorite Text Editor?

What do the TFP'ers have to say about text editors?


my preference has always been

Unix: vim
win32: textpad

I've recently given up textpad for gvim on win32 and am very happy with the results.

I use textpad for editing code, but I use just plain ole notepad for writing notes to myself. If I'm forced to use linux, I like pico.

I like vi in Unix but I can never remember any of the commands. In windows I have a tendency to use wordpad/notepad but I am thinking of switching to something that actually works well.

UltraEdit is my favorite text editor-unless I'm doing Java stuff then I prefer TextPad only because of the ability to compile and run the code from there.

It has the hands on feel like the unix version with the clikity-clikness of windows.

Another vote for UltraEdit right here.

So many useful tools in that application, plus it's cheap.

in linux I use nano. It's light, and it's easy for me to remember the basic commands. It helps that they are listed on the bottom of the screen.

In windows, I use textpad or note pad if I'm just doing something small.

Vim on Linux, vi on Unix, EditPadLite on Wonders.
Just installed gvim on my Win2k box. I'll have to try that -- I've been using vim in Cygwin too.

I use Notepad for almost everything. Personal notes, reminders, jokes, small reports, statistics, web-URLS, almost anything.
Its small, has a tiny memory footprint, and works well.

Vim, becuase I need an editor, not an OS (referring to emacs, for those of you who've never heard a comment like that before).

In linux I use vi when I'm stuck to a console, kwrite when I'm not (haven't used linux for a year or two). In windows it's UltraEdit.

I use a program call WordPerfect for writing essays. It works great, but nobody else has it, so I can never send my files to other people.

Notepad baby! all the way!!! but i am going to give this gVim thing a try.... I've tried UEdit, works great but the crack for it sucks so i stopped using it, Also it seemed more powerful than I needed cause i don't really need to do anything with hex... but it does c code and html which is really cool.

WOW, i never knew that anybody was still using wordperfect today. I remember back when the only way to write stuff was using wordperfect 5.1/ 6.0a for DOS.

Back to the thread, I'm with the people who use notepad in windows (there is just something about simple text files that most non-computer people don't understand).

oh yes WP 5.1 my god, what was it to quite ALT-F7 or something, damn I must have had like over 100 key combinations in my head over the past years ...


if find it strange that so few use emacs ??? it's the most powerfulll editor out there imo, but the learning curve isn't that easy :-(


ps: it even has games in it :-)
