Suggest a text editor

Recommended Posts

I am using OS 10.2 and need to edit my Apache config file.

 

I downloaded Tinkertool which shows hidden files but I didn\'t find the config file.

 

BBedit is $180 ??...right now I can\'t afford it.

 

any other suggestions are appreciated.

 

btw, fwiw, for newbies...there is a great 4part article on Apache Webserving with Jaguar on www.macdevcenter.com

I\'m not experience with the OS you mentioned but in all the systems I\'ve used apache on the config file has never been hidden. Also any text editor at all should be fine for editing the config file. Here is the path of the configuration file on my W2K system

 

C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/conf/httpd.conf

why complicate things?

 

if running WinOS >> notepad

if running *nix >> use their standard text editor (forgot the name \'doh)

 

 

* the simplest things are sometimes the best :wink:

Greetings,

I have a suggestion that will work on any OS.

The editor is called NEdit. It\'s very powerful and you\'ll

probably never need another editor. The windoze ver.

can be found @ http://nedit.1command.com . Any other

OS ver. can be found @ http://nedit.org . Unlike the BBEdit

you were talking about - this editor is FREE! Hope you like

it.

 

Best wishes,

Chris
