General :: Windows - Text / Log Editor With Auto-refresh Support

Feb 8, 2010

I'm looking for a text editor / log manager of some kind that will automatically refresh a file's contents when it changes.

I have a single target log file (e.g. current.log) that is overwritten under certain circumstances and I'd like to be able to leave it displayed and not constantly have to re-open the file to get updates. Much the same as 'tail --follow=name' does in Linux.

I'm using a Windows desktop but it's a remote file so a Linux app would work just as easily.

General :: Php - Text Editor That Can Save Locally And Via FTP For Switching From EditPlus On Windows

May 18, 2010

I just switched from Windows to Linux. I've been using EditPlus for many years mainly because of it's ability to save locally, and then send the file via FTP, with easy keyboard shortcuts (ctrl-s to save, ctrl-alt-s to ftp).

I also need syntax highlighting and basic code editing features. Is there anything for Linux that can do this? I don't want to run EditPlus via Wine

I need to save locally and remotely simultaneously, or at least with a few keystrokes. I already know of plenty of ways to edit remote files.

General :: All Text In Text Editor Turned To Boxes?

Jul 17, 2009

I was trying to install GTK+-2.8.20, so I installed it's necessary dependencies in this order:

pkg-config-0.23
glib-2.20.4
pango-1.24.4
jpeg library
tiff library
cairo

And I was about to install the last dependency: ATK (Accessability Toolkit).I opened the Archive Manager to extract the "atk-1.26.0.tar.gz" file (yes, I'm still switching from Windows so I'm fond of GUI), but I noticed all the text in that window was boxes, like the □ type box for every letter of text.So instead I thought it wouldn't be a big deal, because the terminal and regular windows weren't screwed up.I opened a text file in gedit (reference to commands in terminal, such as how to extract files via terminal), but yet again all of the text was □-like boxes.

Ubuntu :: Open Text Editor In Multiple Windows?

Sep 1, 2011

I sometimes have two similar files that one works and one doesn't. I would like to compare the differences. But TEXT EDITOR opens two files in two tabs making it impossible to compare the data side by side.

Is there a way to make Text editor open a separate window for each file? Browsers usually have such an option to choose multiple windows or tabs but I can't find away to do this with Text editor.

Ubuntu :: How To Launch Text Editor With Small Windows Size?

Apr 20, 2010

I'm looking for a programmable way to open an editor with a small window size. For example 60 columns and 3 lines. So I need an editor that can take its initial window size from command line args or environment variables, or possibly from an initial command that can be given on the command line.I've looked at documentation and experimented with gedit, gvim (and vi & vim), and nano and I don't think any of them can be controlled this way. Vi and its friends have a "window" option and also a "resize" command, both of which are described as setting the number of rows, but they don't change the graphical window size they just change the number of rows displayed in the window.

Software :: Used A Windows Text Editor (Notepad++) Which Has Set A Benchmark For Requirements?

Feb 16, 2011

I have used a windows text editor (Notepad++) which has set a benchmark for myrequirements. As I tend to use linux most of the time I have been looking for a similar editor for some time. Kate is ticking most boxes. 2 things I can see which I would like if anyone could advise:You can find selected within the current file. IE. highlight a string for searching. I cant see the ability to do the same in all files. Does this exist?In NPP I can search for a string in "all files currently open" within the editor. Does this facility exist in Kate?

Ubuntu :: Text Editor Column Editor And Regex Search/replace, Incrementing Number Insert?

Jul 25, 2011

On windows I really only used Notepad++ as my text editor, it had two features that I loved.What I need to accomplish is what I would do with Notepad++ column editor.I could have like 100 lines, and place the cursor at a column, and goto edit>column editor, and I could insert an incrementing number. (I could also pad the incrementing number with 0s, this was GREAT for making batch files among other things.)So each line at that column had a number higher than the previous line.The other feature that I used sometimes was a search/replace with regex patterns.Does anyone know of an editor that has those features for linux? I am mostly after the column editor insert feature but if you know of one with both features that would rock.

General :: Emacs Is How Much More Than Text Editor?

General :: Insert Character Code Into Text Editor?

Aug 11, 2010

I need a lightweight GUI text editor on my Ubuntu Lucid system which lets me specify a Unicode code point (e.g. U+1234), and inserts that character to a UTF-8 text document. I know that gedit can't do it (not even with the Character Map plugin).

I'm not interested in solutions involving any kind of emacs or vi. I'm also not interested in text editors running in the terminal (such as joe, which has this functionality). I need the absolute simplest, smallest and fastest plain text editor for Linux which lets me type a few letters, insert a few characters by their code, type some more letters, and then save the .txt file as UTF-8-encoded.

General :: Firefox Viewing Text Files In External Editor

Mar 10, 2011

I would like to make Firefox view text files not in its internal editor, but in the external editor (namely EmacsClient).Is it possible to change this default behavior of Firefox?I beg your pardon for being inconcise, I'll try to state the matter once again. First thing to mention is that I use the Linux version of Firefox. That means that unlike the Windows version the contents of the application bindings dialog is very scarce.

When I click on the link to a text file (be it remote or local) by default Firefox opens it in the internal browser. I've tested, somehow it looks at file extension - when for example I make a file with .mpg extension, the behaviour is as it should be - the dialog with "Open With..." and stuff. When the file has unknown extension (unknown to /etc/mime.types), in my case it's .out, pure text format - the default behaviour is to open it in a Firefox window.

General :: Disk Based Text Editor To Edit File Larger Than Memory?

Aug 2, 2010

I am using Ubuntu and looking for a good editor to edit a file that is > 4GB. I just need to put content at the end and beginning of the file. I suppose I could use something like

cat "text to add" >> huge_file

To append to the file. Is that the route to go? What about prepending? In general, what is the best route if I wanted to edit somewhere in the middle?

I've tried VIM and it fails miserably. I assume emacs and nano would be even worse. What else is there? I assume to accomplish what I am looking for, the editor would have to be specifically designed for this by not keeping the entirety of the file's contents in memory.
