Here is a selection of some coding fonts.

http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/30040/Font-Survey-of-the-Best-Monospaced-Programming

I have to admit I have always been using "Courier/New" because of Microsoft (QBASIC/Visual-Basic).

But I saw some nice fonts there, especially the ones that have slashed 0s.

To me, the prettiest font for technical texts is AMS Euler

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMS_Euler

It would be cool to see how it works in currently developed FASM IDEs. Wink

BTW, R. Graham, D. Knuth, O. Patashnik's "Concrete Mathematics" was printed using this font.

"Liberation Mono" size 10 (9 or 8 what you prefer), no anti-alias or other blurring algorithm (The blurring really annoys me).

It is a very good font.


The blurring is Microsoft's ClearType technology. It messes up some stuff. It works well sometimes.

I really like SourceCode Pro provided by Adobe,

but don't let that scare you!

http://sourceforge.net/projects/sourcecodepro.adobe/?source=typ_redirect

I use it in RadASM and it makes life easier for me!

Raster? FixedSys 9 in lower resolutions. Vector? Consolas. Resolution doesn't matter.

Here are 2 pure black/white fonts for lower resolutions, 640x480-1024x768: SYSTEM and COURIER. Font.W=Image.W/95. I do not own these but have been using them in my programs and games since 1997.

My main font (CODEX) was created about 8 years ago. It has a slight blurry edge which I didn't notice at the time. The brightness was set low so it appeared to have a sharp edge. I'm too lazy to edit it. I made that by hand - 4+ hours of copying and pasting 100s of little sections in Paint Shop Pro with grid enabled - and I'm not going to do that again! Next time, I will auto-generate.

Let this be a lesson: Use STANDARD/DEFAULT colors and brightness when doing digital art to ensure that it looks the same on most PCs.

THEMES?

For programming, I actually prefer strictly black and white with no graphics or distractions. I was just playing around with ARM-VD. Please don't judge a book by its cover or assume that the programming is good or bad just because it's artistic. Look inside and see what it's really about: ARM programming. I will offer pure black and white themes as well.

I use this font now: Proggy Font

Just make sure you configure it in its native size.
