Publisher's Description

jEdit is a mature programmer's text editor with hundreds (counting the time developing plugins) of person-years of development behind it.

Some of jEdit's features include:

  • Written in Java, so it runs on Mac OS X, OS/2, Unix, VMS and Windows.
  • Built-in macro language; extensible plugin architecture. Hundreds of macros and plugins available.
  • Plugins can be downloaded and installed from within jEdit using the "plugin manager" feature.
  • Auto indent, and syntax highlighting for more than 200 languages.
  • Supports a large number of character encodings including UTF8 and Unicode.
  • Folding for selectively hiding regions of text.
  • Word wrap.
  • Highly configurable and customizable.

Every other feature, both basic and advanced, you would expect to find in a text editor.
