Boy, are you in luck.  Linux has an almost embarrassingly large number
of text editors available.  As a starting place, take a look at Bill
Latura's site:


Here's the text of that section:

Text Editors

            Andys Source Code Folding Editor-a language configurable
folding source code editor

That's only a start.  If you look at other sites, like
<http://www.linuxapps.com/> or <http://freshmeat.net/> you'll
undoubtedly find references to even more.

This list is currently pretty much moribund.  Most of the app
development within SEUL is going on on specific projects.  If you're
interested in any of those, Roger can help you find them.  You can take
a look at:




to see what they are and what they've been discussing.
