The best is definitively (X)Emacs (my opinion).
For Windows have a look at (GNU Emacs):
And for XEmacs with Cygwin (XEmacs, Latex, ..., for Ess simple save (require 'ess-site) in your init.el):
For native Xemacs for Windows:
Xemacs is easy to install, use and configure (more easy than the GNU-Version).
Under Linux both comes with the most distributions (I use both under SuSE 8.2).

Betreff: [R] best editor for .R files
Which is the best editor for .R files?
I currently use kate on my linux as it has R highlighting and allows me to split the window into two: in one I edit the .R file and in the other I have a shell so I run R and can easily copy and paste the code. There are some features that I don't like and I am having a look on some alternatives. I've heard wonders of emacs with ess but I am a little bit frightened of the steep learning curve.
What do the R experts use or would recommend using?
Both linux and/or windows alternatives are welcomed.
I guess it would much depend on the particular needs/preferences of each user but I would like to know which are the most commonly used editors. Thanks, Angel
