Maybe we need a text-editors-only sub-forum
Yay! Time to rant about Atom!
[rant]Tried Atom; it wouldn't compile, even though I had all the dependencies and specs. Strike one.
So I tried somebody's PPA, which worked well...-ish. 7 seconds to start up. Wat? For a text editor
? Strike two.
Doesn't have column/rectangular selection or bookmark by search. Strike three.[/rant]
Ah well, it's still young yet, let's see how it does in a few months.
Also, no Pascal lexer, and no option to build, compile, or run from the editor (that I could see).
Getting a bit more comfy with TextAdept. With a few tweaks, it may rival Geany
...pardon my doubts.
