Title: Text Editor Recommendation?
Post by: daniel3000 on September 12, 2006, 10:49:36 am
Hello,

I'm looking for a GUI-based, fast, lightweight text editor which allows for user-definable keyboard macros, date- and timestamp insertion, editing several files at once, search feature, adjustable font and font size.

What do I mean by "fast"?
It should be as fast as leafpad. Especially it should have a fast startup.

Does anyone know such an editor?

Thanks
daniel

I haven't tried leafpad, but I use nedit (http://www.nedit.org), which does pretty much everything you're asking for.  If you want to try it, download the attachement.  It requires lesstif from one of the pdaXrom feeds.

It seems to be a very capable  editor!
