Editors (Was Phoenix.pm: Mac/Windows -> Unix line endings)

	Sorry, but I just couldn't resist!  I have downloaded just about
every editor on the planet and tried it out on my systems and finally
settled on... VIM (http://www.vim.org), which stands for Vi IMproved.  I
use it on my 386 laptop (running Linux), my main development box
(running NT Server) and my deployment servers (running HP-UX and
Solaris) - same keystrokes, same look and feel.  

	Its got syntax highlighting for everything imaginable.  War
story:  I was able to find and fix a problem in a 1.6MB Postscript file
in minutes because of the syntax highlighting.

This is a vaguely related tangent. I use a program called EditPlus which
has color syntax and many great features, like unlimited "undo". Very

I write my scripts on NT/test on NT(have a full duplicate system), then
just upload my files to the Linux box.

EditPlus is great for coding, at least I've found it to be. The color
coding templates, choose your own colors for different types of quoting,
variables, on and on. Unlimited "undo"... Also you get this nice panel
all your open scripts. 

It's shareware, here is a link for info and download:


Well, just thought you might find it interesting.
