Programmers Ultimate Editor
Posted by vladimir_l [send private reply] at January 23, 2002, 01:52:41 PM For a long time I have used PFE , soon it became outdated but I still kept it. That was a year ago , now I have come back to it to admire its beaty. So I decided to create a new editor from scratch , I know , a load of people are gonna say that thats easy :/ . But really in a project like this the most important thing is - the design , so its full of juicy stuff , but not so full that it breaks and just goes all crazy. Does anyone have any ideas of what I should have in it? Thanks.

Posted by vladimir_l [send private reply] at January 23, 2002, 04:26:20 PM I am basing it on my Wap Notepad , ok I am thinking of synatx plug-ins for different lnguages , would that be too much ?
Posted by sphinX [send private reply] at January 27, 2002, 06:36:08 AM There are already some very good programming editors (albeit not free ones) available. EditPlus is one of my personal favourites, followed closely by UltraEdit.
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at February 01, 2002, 03:57:52 PM Why not just use emacs...if you don't like the way emacs does something then just change
it with some emacs-lisp. That would be a much more worthwhile project.
Emacs already does the hard stuff like providing buffers and
a syntax highlighting framework (among many other things).
All you would have to do is write a few functions and hook
them into the editor in your .emacs to customize it the way
Posted by taubz [send private reply] at February 01, 2002, 09:12:11 PM I'm not a fan of emacs in the least. I find it incredibly complicated, when all I need is something (for Windows) that does hilighting and indentation... Buffers are weird.
Anyway, I think that self-degrading usernames shouldn't be allowed. aspiring_dude would be better, I think. :-P
