jEdit - programming text editor

Friday, 19 June 2009 00:17
JEdit has a "Column Ruler" plugin, very nice.

jEdit lets you do a dos2unix (line separator conversion) for the current buffer, "Utitilies->Buffer Options".
Set the drop down menu for "Line seperator". to "Unix (\n)" or "Dos (\r\n)" and save the document.

jEdit has nice features when it comes to matching up bracket and parenthesis. Positioning the caret immediately after a bracket will highlight the corresponding closing or opening bracket (assuming it is visible), and draw a scope indicator in the gutter. Pressing (Ctrl-]) will move the caret to the matching bracket. Pressing (Ctrl-[) selects the inside of brackets. Also, holding Ctrl and clicking on the scope indicator in the gutter selects all the text within the brackets as well.
