Dear users,

 From the recent discussion, I've wondered whether a text editor would 
be useful.
However, I couldn't find a good explanation of what it is used for.
For now, under Windows XP, I use the standard  R Editor to write and run 

What can I do more with a text editor? It is worth using it?

Thanks in advance for your advice.
