    Edit+

    Syntax highlighting, spell checker, remembering the files I last played with and opening them automatically when you restart Edit+, tabs, etc, are all very handy. I've used Edit+ for:

    PHP
    ASP (JScript & VBScript)
    Assembler
    C/C++
    Perl
    Java
    Note taking in class

    you can configure user tools to run commands and supply arguments. and then map them to the keyboard. i havent set it up on editplus yet but i had it set up when i used crimson.

    theres a how to at the crimson site, it probably carries over pretty much to edit+

    i used to use crimson, editplus can open files through ftp etc too. its a nice feature to have. i stopped using crimson because of the puppy dog and bone icons. i really hate those :o

    yeah ive been using it a couple days now and really like it too. here is the actual edit plus FAQ with the how to on configuring tools, looks pretty similar:

    http://www.editplus.com/faq.html#java

    to configure hotkeys go to tools menu, configure user tools, and then in the menu on the left go to keyboard. you can change just about all the hotkeys from there it looks like.

    Hmm...I've never used vim for win32... I haven't really edited text in a windows environment for probably 2 1/2 years anyway LOL. The few times i was on a windows machine and needed a text editor i just ssh'd into my machine at home and used vim there.
