Do you remember my article about the
Well, I admit that I implicitly lied to you when I made the impression that
acme would be the last editor you'll ever need. In fact, I am currently using quite a bunch of editors in parallel.
acme2k(as described in the article): General purpose IDE/editor at work and when I'm on Linux.
sam: Taking multiple notes at work and when I'm on Linux.
notepad: Taking single notes at work.
- Notepad3: Replaced Notepad for me at home (Windows 10) - it supports Perl-compatible regular expressions and I use them a lot.
- GNU Emacs: General purpose IDE/editor at home (Windows 10).
ed: Linewise editor for quick configuration changes on my servers.
nvi: A non-intrusive full-screen editor for more complex changes on my servers. (No syntax highlighting, of course.)
Not counting specialized IDEs (because certain things, like Android development and doing stuff with Delphi, require one), that makes 7 - and some of them are changed (ir)regularly.
What is your pet peeve when it comes to software?
(My other one are file managers, but that's probably worth a second article.)
