Vim, Emacs, Nano? In terms of text editors, you are missing the top dogs. I agree that some of the things listed can be used for scripting, but they are not text editors. For example, I can write a python script in Vim, emacs, and Nano. I can write a shell script in emacs, vim, or nano that contains sed, awk, and grep.

sed, awk, and grep can be used for text file translation/conversion of scripts. Taking input from a data extract and wrapping it with stuff to create insert statements for another database is sql script creation.
