What tools are folks using on the list? What may be worth checking out?
Are other people experiencing the same issues I am with Quanta Plus?
Hi Bill! Off-hand, I can think of Screem, although I don't use it or
Q+ either. Maybe I should try them again. Does Q+ offer
Thanks for the responses, guys.
Q+ key bindings are configurable. I've set a few to make life easier.
Screem seems (on very superficial inspection) to be more of a html/web
editor and less of a general programming editor for my tastes. It
doesn't seem to support ssh/sftp connections, and I do not run ftp on
any of the boxes I administrate.
I love vim, and it works very well for ad-hoc editing on remote boxes
through shell sessions - but I don't generally do remote x-windows
tunnelled through ssh, therefore the gui version isn't really a winner.
vim's multi-windowing (Ctrl-w, Ctrl-w anyone?) works well, but it
chews screen space on the currently in-use window. You can duct tape
antlers to a dog, but it isn't really a reindeer, contrary to Dr.
I'll take another run at Screem and Bluefish and post my thoughts. I
dug through the Q+ site today and found my issues are shared and have
been simmering for a while - it looks like the development team is
pretty small and overloaded.
