    The computing device that I'm programming.

    Ooo, you mean software, then my IDE (Dev-Cpp, TextPad, and JCreator).

    Debugger would have been a good answer but for the fact that I'm now coding in C# and not Smalltalk.

    Peace and quiet, something the kid in one of the rooms has a hard time grasping.
    Here are the rules, you must obey them or the gender bender will get you.

    And if you ever think of posting without code-tags, the evil monkey will come after you.

    That's two votes for Notepad... has the world gone mad? the editor you can access from the DOS prompt is better than Notepad!

    Spend a little money on UltraEdit or something good - you'll never look back.

    NotePad is beautiful in its simplicity-- I use it for everything from simple sorting apps to A.I. Keep it Simple.

    but notepad doesn't even hold idents!

    now i'm doing everything in Visual Studio, but before that I couldn't have lived without UltraEdit. Even the simple things it does, like adding itself to right click menus so you can "Open file in UltraEdit". It's beautiful. Especially when you work with files with no extension so you can't assign a default viewer for them.

    then it has syntax highlighting, macros, hex editing, the lot. BUT, and heres the best bit, even though it has all these great features, you can just use it as a simple text editor!

    -- disclaimer -- I'm in no way affiliated with UltraEdit or whoever makes it. I've just used it in the past and it's the best text editor i've used.

    Holding a series of indents is really no problem for me-- I never mess with indenting until usually half-way through the initial coding phase, that is, if I don' t wait until final compile, fix, and release. I consider indenting "clean-up" and I only take time to make it nice at the end to meet others' expectations and for their convenience. I would rather just use comments to indicate code areas and modules than indents. I have never truly understood the point. Now, I have been told this is an unpopular and shoddy practice and opinion (I would be pleased for someone to share their opinion(s) on this, indenting and enlighten me... I'm always looking for better and more concise coding practices ) Thank-you, and GO notePad!

    As sad (maybe?) as it may seem for one who learned all about UNIX compilers and debuggers in college, I don't know if I could now live without the MSVC++ debugger. Man that thing is SWEET.

    Oh, and Spy++ is pretty freakin' cool too. I've encountered bugs that would have been almost impossible to find without it (mostly involving tooltips ).
