    Need an editor for mac.

    I just bought a Macbook today and need to find a good code editor. I've used PC's for everything up to this point so I'm somewhat of a Mac newbie.

    I'd like syntax highlighting, code folding, search and replace, file comparison, HTML, PHP, and CSS auto complete and a very clean interface. I really don't need or want much more than that - no wysywig or anything.

    I would like to stick to the free stuff, but I don't mind spending a few $$.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I saw Coda and it looked nice, but $100 is a little more than I was looking to spend.

    Ditto with textmate.

    I second TextMate, but you could also look at TextWrangler (BBEdit's little brother), which is free: http://barebones.com/products/textwrangler/

    I used to use Dash Code (part of OS X), but now I use the very robust editor called Komodo Edit .

    There are a few different versions of the software. There is a free version that is packed full of features. I'd recommend using it.

    I'm going to be getting Dreamweaver when I get the creative suite within the next few months so I was just looking for something in the short term and I'm not willing to pay $100 for a short term situation.

    Ah ha. In that case, if that case look at Aptana.
