context programmers editor

Context is a pretty nice little code editor that I’ve been running for a bit now. It’s a freeware application written by Eden Kirin and is currently at version 0.97.6. I started off just using it as a notepad alternative and ever since have been discovering features that make it more and more essential. It supports custom defined syntax highlighters so there is a wide selection of higlighters available (no ActionScript 2.0 yet though). I’ve also been playing with swfmill lately and the user definable execution keys in Context allow me to compile directly from within the editor simply by hitting a function key. Sweet.
