Nedit: ``It has a feature set on par with emacs, but with better performance, a
much simpler interface based on modern GUI standards, and the best
mouse-interactivity anywhere. Version 5.0 is a significant upgrade, which adds
full programmability with a C-like macro language, and syntax highlighting
which enhances viewing of source code using fonts and colors. The new macro
language is easy to use, crash safe, interruptable, and includes a library of
over 150 built-in editing functions.'' Last modification on January 27 2000.

``More seriously code is patterns, repeating in variations throughout
programs everywhere. Thats why reading other source code helps - you
learn new patterns of code to use fitting things together. I think quite
a lot of the 'art' of programming is seeing the patterns, spotting the
right pieces to fit together and also looking for commonality.'' Alan Cox.
