Carbonized GNU Emacs works fine for me. Free, syntax highlighting, hotkeys galore. {grin}

    Carbonized GNU Emacs
    Dear merlyn,
    What's the meaning of the word "carbonized" here?
      The current mainstream "CVS HEAD" GNU Emacs compiles to be a native application on OSX, including understanding Apple Events and handling drag/drop and mouse movement. This is not the X11 version requiring the X11 server: it runs native using Carbon calls. Carbon GNU Emacs also uses Apple fonts, not X11 fonts, which I prefer, and also enables the "Services" menu, so I can do cool things there.

      You can get it by compiling directly from the CVS HEAD, which I do daily... takes about a half hour to compile, but CPU is cheap. You can also download precompiled binary snapshots, but bear in mind that these are "pre-release" versions and may have broken functionality or preliminary documentation.

      I believe that he's referring to a version of Emacs that uses the Carbon APIs to make an application behave as a native Macintosh application. Google around for it carbonized Emacs, as I remember there's a version in CVS.

      Personally, I like vi/vim as editors, I can run them in Terminal.app on my IBook and through ssh sessions to and from other computers. Nice stuff.

      Cheers. :)
