Smultron text editor

A nice alternative to BBedit (which beyond being not free, takes a long time to load on my machine - too many plugins installed maybe) is Smultron. Just found out about it - many features, programmed in Cococa, and FREE

Smultron is a text editor written in Cocoa for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. [..there's a version for earlier OSs, though..] It is designed to be easy and intuitive to start off with and to become more and more able as and when the user wants it. Some of its features are line numbers, support for syntax colouring for many different languages, functions list, support for text encodings, snippets, a toolbar, a status bar, HTML preview, split window, multi-document find and replace with regular expressions, possibility to show invisible characters, tabs, authenticated open and saves, command-line utility, .Mac synchronisation, full screen editing and running commands from within Smultron.

Peter Borg, the author, is also gently giving out two more apps, Hallon and Lingon. Worth checking out ;-)
