Pros: I tested at least 5 usually very high rated programming editors, and found SynWrite more or less only by chance. Finally I found that SynWrite is one of the very best editors, and for my needs the editor of choice. I am actually surprised that it is still not more popular and not much more frequently referenced to and then also higher ranked by programming editor comparing blogs and journal articles. in general: - it has Code Folding - it has a superb Find & Replace functionality - it runs perfectly stable and is outstandingly fast - it has syntax highlighting (lexer) for almost every language around, and for the case still needed, lexer configuration is very well documented
Other Thoughts: a detail to add to this, for my personal needs:
- it comes already with a basic and yet sufficiently functional MATLAB syntax highlighting, something almost all competitors miss
