There is from me.

But then, I collect text editors, and have a lot installed to look at.

Text editors are like religions. Everyone defends their favorite. Mine was emacs for a long time. Friends tried to convert me to vi. I saw its advantages but I had many useful habits developed over many years in emacs.

Any text editor I use now has to have good macro facilities. My current favorite is PSPad. It does everything I need, it is free, and it will display and edit in hex mode -- very useful! (forum here)

I know. Now someone will say, "Mine is better!"

I get a kick out of text editor brawls. The vi-emacs battles tend to be the most entertaining. They make Windows-Mac dustups look like tea parties.

How do you make a vi user laugh on Saturday?

Tell him a joke on Wednesday.

I remember when that one used "DEC Systems Programmer" rather than "vi user." It was still funny. Then again there was the one about the IBM/360 Internals person with the catch line of "tell him a joke last spring."

TextSpresso from Taylor Design:
http://www.taylor-design.com/textspresso/overview.htm

Sure, it's $25. And the included editor sucks. But, it will work on batches of text files with filters to change things like this:

"This is a bunch of text serving as example of
incorrect word
wrap due to stupid formatting of eBooks. I really
wish there was
some way to fix it, because it's almost impossible
to read this
terribly formatted text."

to this:

"This is a bunch of text serving as example of incorrect word wrap due to stupid formatting of eBooks. I really wish there was some way to fix it, because it's almost impossible to read this terribly formatted text."

through the clipboard.

About 300 built-in filters, with BASIC programmability, user-defined filters, etc.

Oh, and it wreaks havoc in auto-formatting/stylizing editors, like Book Designer. But it's great in Word, or TED: http://jsimlo.sk/notepad/. Can't keep house without it.
