from the peanut gallery
I'm not a full-time programmer. Never had the priviledge.
Currently, my tool needs are satisfied by text editors.
But thanks for mentioning Komodo Edit, it's what I use. I use Komodo Edit for constructing Perl batch regex searches, and HTML and CSS for wordprocessing.
Thanks to ActiveState for Komodo Edit, and their community versions of Perl.
A reflection here. At work, in an IT office of about 20, the developers use TypePad. Already a user of ActiveState Perl, I asked if TypePad knew about regexes. No one knew regular expressions. I was able to continue using Komodo Edit and Perl for my needs.
I wish more people could expand their writing and filing beyond apps into their personal space of data retrieval. I've tried to ease my 30-ish nephew and niece into this perspective. So far, no luck.
For me, I love personal computing, and that means - writing, filing, and retrieval. Apps are not primary, unless the apps are text editors.
