CNET says Visual SlickEdit is an editor to behold:
"Nothing is perfect, but MicroEdge's Visual SlickEdit
6.0 comes darn close. It's a jack-of-all-trades editor that's also
a master at most of what it does. Comprehensive, capable of
recognizing a variety of document formats, customizable, and
available for most popular operating environments, Visual SlickEdit
6.0 is a programmer's dream come true."
Kudos to MicroEdge for continuing to evolve SlickEdit from its
humble roots over a decade or so ago to its current status as a
world-class editor. However, given the talent and persistence on
display in this package, we're perplexed that the installation
CD-ROM doesn't launch an autorun window upon insertion. It's a
minor quibble, but since MicroEdge recommends installing the
software under X11, we expected at least a GUI-based installer.
Relegated to using the command line, we mounted the CD-ROM and
switched to the correct subdirectory; then, it was only a matter of
typing the name of the install program to start the installation
process. Aside from entering the 29-character code key and creating
tag file descriptions (if needed), everything else is automatic.
While there's a variety of pickable nits woven into the fabric of
the software--in both documentation and operation--such minor
imperfections are far overshadowed by Visual SlickEdit's
performance and features."
