vi or emacs ?
heh, An argument that'll never be settled mate
Gotta say personaly i prefer eMacs over vi
Emacs. No question. All I've managed to do in Vi is to hang it and quit. Vi got users choise this year right?
3 people, i guess everyone else uses Notepad
guess so. I thought for sure this would get some replies, but guess not.
are u talking about htlm editor? if so I have never tryed wither of those cept notepad I perfer Dreamweaver 4 myself.
nope, under UNIX/Linux there are (for the most part) text (non-gui) text editors. there are two schools of users. vi (virtually impossible...lol) editor which was the first to emerge on the scene, then Emacs which followed there after. vi is pretty robust but hard to use sometimes. emacs is better (thats my opinion) but both do the same thing. & notepad for all intents and purposed is not even close to vi & emacs, but more along the line of (pine's) pico. vi & emacs both give you text editing and command line interface at the same time. to my knowledge they dont have this for windows (except under cygwin). these pre-date the " Internet ", infact they probably pre-date windows too (just a guess).
Well to put a spanner in the works pico otherwise vi
emacs for me
