Writing computer code can be a complicated undertaking. You've got to figure out what you're trying to accomplish, then write the code, and then spend time debugging your handiwork. Sounds simple enough, but it can get messy. Which computer language are you writing in? Do you remember the differences in syntax between PHP and Perl? How about JavaScript? You might be interested in a text editor that helps you out with some of these complications.

Komodo Edit is a text editor designed specifically for programmers. You're working in plain text, so you don't have to worry about extra junk in your code. It features syntax highlighting and syntax checking for supported languages. It also includes autocomplete, so if you can enter the start of a command or keyword, you can probably finish it without having to know all the particulars—especially handy when it comes to functions with multiple arguments. Block indenting helps you better organize your code; code folding lets you focus on the stuff you're editing without having to dig through the stuff you aren't.

You can download a free copy of Komodo Edit. It's available for Linux, Mac, and Windows platforms.
