ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

That's the question of the day. What kinds of tools do you like when programming? I'm talking about anything from fancy IDEs like KDevelop or Ajunta to cat - >foo.c I've been playing with KDevelop lately, but I'm finding I have to fight with it too much, so I'm considering going back to the good old xterm & vim.
A few defines with global-set-key in the .emacs file takes care of that, I have all the frequently used functions defined to F1-F12 and the keypad keys. I've found there's no quicker/easier way to do power-editing, including pulldown menus & icon buttons for functions.
When I first worked on Linux, the local gurus introduced me to VI and I've been using it ever since(say, 2 years). But now, I'm trying to get comfortable to emacs...The only thing I don't like about emacs is, autosaving feature...creates ~ files and I hate them. Emacs is one true hack and Richard Stallman is the last of the legendary AI Lab Hackers. Hats off to RMS.

Vim too creates ~ (backup) files unless :set nobackup is specified. I dont use Emacs but i'm 100% sure it has a option to disable saving backups if they bother you..
So yeah, aterm and Vim! (For minimal programming i do that is...)
Distribution: Emacs and linux is its device driver(Slackware,redhat)

you can collect them to a folder under your home like that
;;save everything to a folder
backup-by-copying t ; don't clobber symlinks
'(("." . "~/.saves")) ; don't litter my fs tree
version-control t) ; use versioned backups
