vi and Nedit are my faves, but I was wondering what people use for general text editing and coding on Irix. vim? emacs? Other?

i hope this isn;t going to turn into yet another vi verses emacs thread they must account for over half of the theads on all forums around the world.

but yes i like vi if i am doing anything important if its just a quick script or a note i just use nano which is a pico clone with a few extras

I use vim for coding, and nedit for quick formatting (like if I copy a url in 2 lines, put it together into 1 line to paste into mozilla)

Of course, vim has issues for me when running remotely...it just sits there. Anyone else have this issue.

I learned vi in a college unix class after I had been using linux for a few years. I like it because I know that it is on any system.

I aggree. One can pretty much jump on any Unix box and be sure that vi will be there.

Well.... I´m quite comfortable with nedit´s syntax highlighting capabilities, but then it´s been ages since I seriously programmed. Does vi have extensible code highlighting? I need to write myself an OPL syntax highlighter sometime (Psion palmtop programming). For all things unicode I use yudit. It´s got a custom interface which is a bit of a pain sometimes, but it´s stable and let´s you write and save about every format under the sun. Especially try Armenian in emacs or vi.... it´s just not the same as in yudit... hehe.

I also feel like a major unachiever when I admit this, but I use Nedit. I like all the simple to use syntax highlighting, the search and replace is also fairly powerful, and the programmability of the macros and menus.

Nedit and joe my self.

I prefer not to use achiac editors that should have bitten the dust twenty or more years ago.

emacs would be good if I could bring myself to master it's syntax, and if I could get used to using a text editor the way most people use a window manager...

vi, on the other hand, just about rules. I've used nvi and vim from time to time (specifically, vim is great for syntax highlighting and long-line support), but no matter how you shake it -- it's an admins-editor. I have found nothing with the power and simplicity of it's regexp engine and command interface; where else can you search and conditionally replace using a regexp, on a specific subset of lines, without ever touching a mouse?

I am one with vi. Feel the vi-ness inherent in the universe, and you will know true power.

I agree with lisp on this one - time to move into the 21st century and use a proper visual editor.
Nedit gets my vote as well as Jedit - one Java base editor that can keep up with my typing (Ok, I don't type that fast and I have R10K and R12K based machines).
Has a great plugin system and huge number of features.

Nik.

Irix has it's own java run time installed. I've ran .jar files before.

java -jar Arachnophilia.jar (i think)


You might even be able to just

chmod +x Arachnophilia.jar
and
./Arachnophilia.jar

For the latest version of Java go to the SGI site.
