Could you post a link to this "ultraedit" so we can know what to compare an application to?

Your basic text editors are going to be:
kwrite
pico (command line)
nano (pico clone)
vim (there are religions based around this text editor)
kate
gedit
xedit
And something not-as-hoggy-but-nearly-as-good as Word:
abiword
Of course you have your Office Suites too:
OpenOffice
StarOffice
KDE Office (KOffice)

Cool

I'm not familiar with Ultraedit or it's features, sorry I use Linux.

For command line, I personally like the editor in Midnight Commander.

I need text editor for gnome desktop on RH8.

You can see ultraedit at: http://www.ultraedit.com

The main features which I like are:
Syntax highlighting (user configurable):
Regular expression searches
Automatic highlighting of brackets/braces as typing or positioning occurs, includes < and > for HTML

http://freshmeat.net/redir/katy/1287...ourceforge.net

http://www.beautifier.org/

These 2 applications came up on a search at www.freshmeat.net for Ultraedit

In fact, the first link even referenced it as "inspired by Ultraedit"

I like cooledit. It does regular text processing, but also if you are a programmer it shows keywords, etc in different colors. I usually program and small text processing in cool edit, then major documents in open office. I am unfamialar with the text editor you were referring to in windows, so I am not sure if these helps.
