FTE Text Editor
FTE is a free (licensed under the GNU GPL) text editor
for developers. It is really powerful, yet very easy and intuitive to use.
Ports that can be compiled from the current source tree include OS/2, Win32
console, DOS, Linux console and an X port for many UNIX'es, including
Linux, AIX, Solaris, HP, and Cygwin. An incomplete UNIX terminal port (using
s-lang) is also available.
It can be built using GCC ports on all supported platforms, but other
compilers are also supported on Win32 and OS/2
A few build levels are available.
- This is the last fully-built set of binaries.
- This is the snapshot before some very major changes. You need to compile
- This is the snapshot after some very major changes. You need to compile
this yourself. New features include internal CVS support, new colors, and
many new commands.
(The list is of course incomplete :)
- Syntax highlighting and syntax-aware autoindent for many languages
/ file formats, including C(++), Java, Perl, Sh, Pascal, SQL, Assembly,
PHP, Python, REXX, Ada, Fortran, IDL,
LinuxDoc, TeX, TeXInfo, HTML, diffs, emails and makefiles
- User-definable syntax highlighting using a configurable state machine
