Well, now that the mac has a real operating system, you can use:
or you can probabbly compile jed (http://space.mit.edu/~davis/jed/) in a
minute if you want something a bit lighter than emacs but with the same
All three fantastic tools, powerful beyond anyone's needs and different enough
that one of them hopefully will meet your tastes.
Since all three will run happily in a terminal, no need for X11.
