    Text Editors

    Since this seems to be an extremely common question amongst SitePoint members I've decided to make a sticky that just lists what is available. Please help make me a list of available software. I guess what we would need to know for each piece of software is:

    - Name
    - Cost/Free
    - Platforms it runs on
    - Programming languages it supports
    - URL

    I'll periodically update this list so we can have a one-stop thread for text editors.

    I'll start:

    UltraEdit
    Cost: $ 39.95 ( 34.76)
    Platform: Windows
    Languages Supported: All

    Not sure how to enter this, so I'll just say it. You can get BBEdit for $99. If you register TextWrangler (which is free), then you can "crossgrade" to BBEdit for $99. Your get the coupon in your TextWrangler registration email. Not sure why BareBones doesn't just charge $99 in the first place, but anyways just wanted to point out that you don't have to pay $199 for BBEdit anymore.

    You can also get the $99 crossgrade price if you have Dreamweaver or GoLive.

    I've used it (but admittedly not in the last 2 years or so) but preferred TopStyle.
