In my quest for a lisp friendly text editor I came across this one. It supports a wide variety of languages (including lisp) and has lots of features. However, it runs a tad slow on my 550MHz AMD-K6-2+ Sad. I posted the package incase someone with a faster machine wants to try it out. The text editor pet, it's three dependency pets, and a readme are in the tar file.

I've used SciTE forever and only have two gripes about -that very, very long lines are hard to scroll over and see then end.
And that it suffers a fairly common glitch with syntax highlighting -apparently geany suffers the same problem as I have seen something like 'Damn Geany GRRRR' in Barry'S scripts where he'S done the same thing I (ocassionally) have and insert an extra # or ' to not mess up the highlighting.

I use a much older version(1.60), though, which uses GTK-1.2 libs, so it is plenty fast.

How do I make SciTE run faster on GTK+?

The default settings for SciTE were changed in version 1.63 to use the Pango font system and antialiased fonts. You can return to using X core fonts which are faster with these settings:

font.base=font:lucidatypewriter,size:12
font.small=font:lucidatypewriter,size:10
font.comment=font:new century schoolbook,size:12
font.code.comment.box=$(font.comment)
font.code.comment.line=$(font.comment)
font.code.comment.doc=$(font.comment)
font.text=font:times,size:14
font.text.comment=font:lucidatypewriter,size:10
font.embedded.base=font:lucidatypewriter,size:12
font.embedded.comment=font:lucidatypewriter,size:12
font.monospace=font:courier,size:12
font.vbs=font:new century schoolbook,size:12

Line wrapping also slows SciTE down and this can be turned off with wrap=0.

Except when I do that it doesn't run any faster, just makes the fonts more readable. Sad I'll keep working on it...

Scratch that, it runs much faster when I change the lines, I messed up the first time I tried so I didn't notice a difference.

I just installed SciTE and have discovered that DropBox no longer works. I presume it's because of one of the libraries conflicted with some other library.

How do i diagnose this problem?

thanks

SciTE and Geany are both built using Neil Hodgson's "Scintilla" text editor control, which provides the code folding and syntax highlighting features.

See http://www.scintilla.org/ for information about Scintilla, and http://texteditors.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ScintillaEditorFamily for some other editors that also use it.

I looked once to try and find the source files which setup the shell syntax and highlighting, but had no luck -didn't look very hard. Whereas most languages have separate tex files which control the syntax rules, shell and a couple of others seem to be built-in???
