View Full Version : Hard editor wanted

15th December 2006, 09:16 PM
Hi Folks.
I'm seeking for a Linux native text editor for programmers that is capable to open without problems around over 300 web pages at the same time and then does search & replace in all of them in order to update my principal website using Fedora Core 6. Please don't suggest me Emacs or VIM, OK? Any help on this issue will be sincerely appreciated...Some Window$ apps running on Linux by CrossOver does this task fine but the problem is I'm looking for a Linux native editor in order to suck only few CPU.

Sounds like a task that one would be able to perform much more efficiently using the commandline.

If I had to do something like this I would probably try googling for info/tutorials on find and sed.
