This is a question about what you use when you want to edit a file that contains text.|
I use ...
vi or a variant thereof
Emacs or a variant thereof
Notepad or a variant thereof
MS-DOS Editor or a variant thereof
Something else which I will explain in comments
[ Context ]
SubEthaEdit, which I suppose is closest to Notepad. But I'm not sure: I use it as though it were (except when I'm also using the nifty collaborative editing mode), but sometimes it does funny things when I use brackets and shortcut keys, and they well be based on something like Vi or Emacs. Dunno, never used them!
