    A good C/C++ compiler or ANY other compiler should come with an in-built text editor, so it doesn't really matter which one you use...

    My emacs editor uses default GNU bracking and spacing style. It matters. I can also execute various langauges within the editor, send/recieve email and go online (not that I've tried these features, but they are there). There are many rpm packages that enhance emacs.

    When I'm not using the IDE editor of whatever product I'm using, or if I need to do anything clever, I use UltraEdit.

    I don't agree. In my opinion a good code editor should first be easily used with a lot of compilers. At home I'm using ConTEXT which I have linked with several compilers for C, C++, Pascal, Java and assemblers. Second it should offer good facilities for developing code, things like keyword-highlighting and code-browsing are very usefull. An advantage of this is that you need to master just one code editor and don't need to mind very much about the compiler (from an editing point of view).

    I understand your opinion.. but a text editor should be what it sounds like.. TEXT editor.. not HEX editor.. Hex editors & that other stuff could be a completely different application... If you need a text editor, get a TEXT editor, not a HEX/TEXT editor :P

    No, but a text editor should be what it sounds like.. text editor.. it may contain several other plug-ins or whatever they are, but it's main job is a TEXT editor.
