in reply to IDE for OSX

I know there will be the requisite shouts of Vi or Emacs, but I need a GUI to help manage projects and such.

I'm NOT preaching emacs, just wanna understand what you mean...

Please look at these snapshots... could you please precise what kind of additional "GUI help" you need?

UPDATE: I'm just wondering what I might be missing...

Cheers Rolf

    Wow okay, shows what I know and what I've got to look forward to learning. I'd only ever really known of Emacs and Vi as terminal-based. Part of the reason I'm switching to Mac is for a friendlier way of ultimately transitioning to a system in the *nix family, so I'm pretty ignorant of what's available on "the other side". Thanks for posting that and enlightening me a bit :)
      Don't miss Perl on the Emacs Wiki.

      (I use Emacs + PerlySense on Windows, Linux, Solaris with essentially the same user experience so the whole thing is quite cross platform. Don't see how it would be fundamentally worse on OSX.)

        IMHO the Apple UI standards, especially the apple key changes a lot!

        Though there is a special apple-flavor emacs called Aquamacs handling this, though I can't guaranty that ECB screenshots I showed fully work with Aquamacs.

        I think when the OP has problems with UNIX, he should better stick with highly intuitive Textmate, OTOH if he changes to any other UNIX system his Textmate knowhow will be for vain...

        Personally I would prefer Ubuntu to OSX to familiarize with UNIX...
