I agree, I think tkcEditor works very well on the Cxx0.

The full build of scite definitely has syntax highlighting (for pretty much every and any language you care to name)... it\'s my fav editor on   my PC, and I try to leave a copy on every machine I work on ;-)

Hope that the  860 build also has the highlighting.

I wish someone would port it to QT so I could use it on my 5500...

I was trying both emacs and vim on C700 (Cacko ROM). They work but I can not activate the syntax highlighting.... Any one knows how to solve this problem????

I\'m using the version of TinyKate that cwaig posted about a year ago and then withdrew.  It does support an add-on for syntax highlighting but I noticed that is slowed down the performance so I took out that part.

Hi guys,  
thanx for all your input.  I tried a couple, but settled on TKC editor.  Its probably the nicest of the bunch.  Ive been using it mostly for my HTML class that just started.  The 860 is a lot easier to pull out and manage my laptop...plus the OH and AHH factor when people notice.  For the most part Opera has been cooperating nicely as well in being able to just swap back and forth to review my work.  I havent reviewed any documantation but I hope there are some keyboard shortcuts in there.  crtl-s, alt-tab, crtl-r would be nice in speeding things up a bit.

There are no keyboard shortcuts in tkcEditor. That\'s my main gripe with it. The AutoComplete feature isn\'t nearly as useful as it could be because you have to get your stylus out and tap the screen every time you want to use it. I\'ve had a request in theKompany\'s mantis system for this for months, nearly a year even, and nothing has been done about it  . I would have thought that would be very simple to implement.

It could definitely use more keyboard shortcuts.  It would be a bigger issue for me if I used it more often (I edit on a PC mostly).

They do have Fn+Left/Right, which do Home and End, and Fn+Up/Down, which do PageUp and PageDown.  Bare minimum, but useful to know, I guess.

The best, IMHO, is nEdit. It\'s available either on pdaxrom or any rom if you install XQT.

With nEdit, you just download the format files for the programming language you write, and voila. Plus many other goodies

Where is it? I can not find any distribution for Zaurus... Please, could you give a link. Thanks!

Here\'s one for the XPDA ROM:

Here\'s one for the XQT:

Then you can download the syntax files for any dev language from their official site:
