Recently i have seen a flame war over emacs and vi...Now let us get real...
You may already know about most of them..emacs,vi,gedit,nedit,jed,kwrite

But if you are the one who haven't used others i will give brief introduction of other tools..
This text editor is written in java and supports extensiblity with help of many plugins...
This is merely a text default...No code assistance..
You can checkout this link....
This is a supports code assistance,auto completion.All the SDL,OPenGl functions and other
useful GNU/Linux will automatically popup with their correct syntax as you type them..Been
using it for a while...It is not very much extensible.It also keeps track of the function
defined by you..and as you use these function in some other part of code...the name of
the function will popup with correct syntax.Not only will offer auto completion f or
anything you type..Particulary useful for creating Gnome applications..
You can checkout this link
This is $50 million gift to open source community from IBM(as they say)...It is open source Project
that is similar to Websphere(IBM's Propriety project with some 500 plugin).It is an editor
for virtually anything.Just you need to have correct plugin..
It offers great deal of code assistance..but sadly auto completion is not there for everything you
type..Basically this is written in java/gtk/motif....It comes with JDT plugin so that you can start
work on your java projects immediately...but to work with c/c++ you will have to download a
seperate plugin and install it...
Checkout this link....
And for the c/c++ plugin
Last not least..this is tool specially created to cater the need of KDE developers...But it fell short
on my expectations...It doesn't have much of code assistance excpet that it provides some
interface with Qt designer...and it creates a project skeleton for you..It doesn't support auto completion also.

I don't to say..But i want the Programming forum restored...

Sorry..for not including nano but it doen't comes..with Redhat.

Honestly so..i never knew nano exists.I have seen your that thread..But today's...Hi-Fi looks like coming straight from stone age.

Serious programmers won't use it.

I have to fully disagree with you on this, the majority of software projects that I have been a part of, or have witness, the lead programmers often use nano for their source code editing.

I think it has to do with what distribution you come from. I know Redhat, Mandrake and SuSE don't come with nano by default, but for Gentoo it's the default editor, and for debian, it is readily available. When I started in linux using Redhat, i used Pico for all my text editing, however, it was only available with Pine that was non-free, therefore, unavailable when I moved to Debian. Nano is a great alternative to pico, and has extra features that Pico lacks.

I find nothing easier than nano.
