The one true editor for Macs (the mac version of Emacs on longer sucks as much, but it still seems to be clinging to the past). A text editor (as opposed to a word processor) that uses Tcl as it's scripting language. Contains many of the basic Emacs commands and many many of it’s own; There are an insane amount of keyboard shortcuts (about 300, if memory serves). It has 40 different editing modes, including ones for all kinds of programming languages (C++, Python, Perl, Tcl...). Currently at version 7.4.1; The author no longer has enough free time to work on it, so it’s been taken up by the “Alpha Cabal”, who are working on version 8.
