    For anyone interested in a new, decent code editor/IDE-lite environment, you might want to take a look at MS VS Code. It's free as in beer and free as in FOSS, has Intellisense (so it's not just a text editor with syntax highlighting and RegEx braces matching; it's a proper code editor) and git integration if you want that. There are versions available for Windows (naturally, 7 & up), OS X, and some Linux flavours (Debian/Ubuntu and Fedora/RHEL/CentOS). There are language modules for just about anything you'd use in real life - HTML and CSS, along with JS, TypeScript, C/C++, Python, PHP, Go, etc. (Not sure about Perl, but then Perl is kinda special. And if you're a Lisper, you're probably welded somehow to either emacs or Dr Racket, so a new editor isn't going to interest you at all.)

    Haven't given it a really good go yet, but if there's one thing Microsoft has been world-class at, it's code editors. Hey, it's free, and it probably works on your system, so why not give it a shot? You can find more at the VS Code release page.
