Hi,

Is anyone aware of a text editor (not an IDE) that has out-of-the-box
Scala syntax highlighting? I am using Windows at work and I am
unconformable with emacs and Vim?

Thanks

Aidy

Kate has out-of-the-box syntax highlighting for Scala and I think it is a good
editor for coding. It is part of KDE, but you can also install it on Windows:
http://windows.kde.org/ (I did not seriously try kate on Windows, so I don't
know how well it works there, on Linux Kate is quite good).

Greetings,
Michael

As of which version was a Scala syntax definition included? For me,
running Kate 2.5.10 on KDE 3.5.10 under openSUSE 11.1, Scala source
files (named *.scala) are presented as plain text. By contrast, Java
code is presented with syntax-directed highlighting.
