Re: Other Editors?

Jed! of course http://www.jedsoft.org/jed/

I checks on ALL the requirements you mentioned Ian. The major difference between Jed and Emacs (cuz you still wanna use emacs keybindings don't you) is that emacs starts in about 3 seconds, jed in 0.1 but jed can't split the screen vertically like emacs can.

I generally use joe when I need a quick console editor with Emacs bindings. I'll give jed a look too, but I only imagine using it as a quick auxillery editor.
