So, it's been asked before and it'll be asked again, the tired but still interesting (to some!) question that everyone wants to know about every programming language ever invented so that we all have an opportunity to brag, boast, mock, flame, troll, shout, evangelise, denounce, and fight:
Which text editor(s) do you use for writing Lua?
What I use:
SciTE with: (using Bruce Dodson's excellent installer + personally desig^Wraped styles aka Finvision + personal config no longer recognisable as being from Bruce's install (auto word completion ("omnicompletion"), abbreviations, better Lua support find handling wrapping caret behaviour and whitespace settings) + extra syntax defs)
vim (when in cygwin bash (hi PuTTYCyg! I love you!) under XP and for all my shells (except the ones at work where they have the stock vi from 1970 oh my god seriously it's just not fucking funny) with: no highlighting - at all! - which is not easy buggrit + mediumoversized .vimrc file + luarefvim)
As an aside, ViEmu ( http://www.viemu.com/ )is really good if you are in the sort of business where you can claim back the cost of the buying as a tax return.
If you're the sort that likes Vi style editing and must use Visual Studio at work. He even has a Word/Outlook version.
Wow... that's... perverse. Honestly, it would never have even crossed my mind that you could use vi in Word. Thanks for the pointer! Even if I can't persuade my boss to get the company to pay, it'll be fun trying.
Wait a second... it's just a well done hoax, right? Bah. Maybe I'll still try and convince my boss though.
Most of the text editors below need to be downloaded to your computer before you can use them, but all of them provide their own unique set of features that set them apart from the default programs that come with Windows and Mac liteblue.
