I"m trying to remember the name of the software, but it's a text editor basically for web developers, that will do syntax highlighting, and indentions, and such that is gpl.
one that does jsp,html, java, asp, but doesn't have a wysiwig interface, just the text indenting/numbering, highlighting.
wanting to say it was notepad+ or something like that.

ok, notepad+.exe is one, but not what looking for.
What are the preferred one's for the programmers here?

I just use the PDT (PHP enabled) version of Eclipse with some plugins, including the HTMLTidy plugin.. Does syntax highlighting and all sorts of things.. HTMLTidy plugin will format your HTML based on the settings you give it..

There's also vim, emacs.. :shrug:

I'm not fond of it but there's jEdit (runs on JAVA). I prefer Emacs myself.

Actually, 'cept for being JAVA based, JEdit is really cool (insane?) and it runs on almost any OS. Make sure and check out all of the plugins, too.

Old school vi dude, here!

We may be entering into a mortal battle! Vi vs. Emacs!

I use notepad++ on windows. Others in my office use Crimson Editor. Of course, anyone with a Mac uses TextPad. And now that I'm on Linux, I use gEdit.

Emacs is the definitive programmer's editor.

Vi is handy for quick script hacks but Emacs can't be beat for hammering out lines of code.

have crimsonedit, it doesn't seem too great... I have to be honest, i'm used to the +/- of Visual Studio 2005 Standard for c#,html,web controls.
It's pretty ok for doing the jsp files as html, then renaming them. but doesn't really handle jsp controls. Granted, i'm sure if given the time a custom class to port jsp taglibs it would do pretty well. but think that would also be jumping into some legal water i don't want to drown in.


ps.. tdh, i think edlin should return to it's grave.

pss.. i'm using windows.. and dont' want to load the unix ports so vi and emacs are out.
agree vi is pretty good for scripting. haven't ever used emacs much.. first use reminded me too much of edlin.
Lets not get into a cshell, kshell, bourne shell battle either.
