Visual SlickEdit: A Commercial Editor for Programmers
I found SlickEdit to be a very responsive editor on my Pentium 120 machine with 32MB of memory. Its memory footprint and loading time are comparable to those of GNU Emacs, and about half of what XEmacs requires. Search and replace operations are quick, and file operations (loading, switching from one buffer to another, etc.) seem to be as fast as can be expected.
MicroEdge maintains a web site for SlickEdit users and prospective customers at http://www.slickedit.com/. Patches for registered users are available there, as well as macros and tips from other users and the MicroEdge developers.
At around $200 US for the Linux version, the price will probably be too steep for many Linux users, especially with so many high-quality free editors available. The program is intended for professional developers, in particular those working in a cross-platform shop. A programmer routinely collaborating on large projects with colleagues using Windows, OS/2 or another Unix variant would find this editor very useful, as project files and macros are compatible across platforms.
