Re: Like Sublime

Personally I still find these editors still fall short compared to an IDE like IntelliJ or Eclipse for actual development but they're fine when used in conjunction with the command line.

Personally, I find IDEs still fall short compared to a decent editor, a real build system (that isn't a bunch of black boxes), a competent standalone debugger, and the vast wealth of tools available on the command line.

I won't say I've never liked an IDE. Turbo Pascal 3 was pretty good, compared to what else was available under MS-DOS. ISPF is OK, if you're working under zOS.

But tastes differ.
