Jed

jed

Jed is a small, fast (faster startup than bash) and powerful text editor.

This package is completely customizable with prepared emulation modes for Emacs, CUA (similar to KDE/Gnome/OpenOffice), Borland-IDE, Brief, and EDT. It is extensible in the S-Lang scripting language (with a syntax resembling C).

Tools included are a directory editor (dired), info (browse GNU info files), mail, rmail, ispell,shell mode, and more.

It has special modes (syntax highlight, indention, compile, ...) for a wide range of programming languages including Basic, C, C++, DCL, FORTRAN, IDL, Java, NROFF, Pascal, Perl, PHP, PostScript, Python, SH, as well as modes for markup languages including HTML and (La)TeX (with AUC-TeX style editing and BibTeX).
