Anyone ever take a look at a source code editor called SciTE? It's got an ASM properties file that supports MASM and partial support for NASM. I thought it might be easy to adapt the existing properties file to support HLA syntax instead, but I ran into a problem right off the bat -- couldn't get it to use anything other than ";" as a comment character. A further digging into the docs revealed that some changes might require a re-writing of the lexer and a re-compile of Scintilla and SciTE, so I guess it might take more than just a shuffling of the values in the properties file. Before I get in over my head, I was wondering if anyone else had stumbled upon this editor and fiddled with these types of changes? One neat feature I noticed in the docs is meantion that one can provide some sort of API definitions file so that the editor provides Tooltips and AutoComplete functionality as well.

I recently downloaded the .EXE/DLL-in-one file version of SciTE from the website, but I haven't messed with trying to get specific FASM syntax highlighting (or anything else, really).

AutoComplete? If you mean InsertCompletion (like "Ctrl-Space" in Fresh or Ctrl-N, Ctrl-P in VIM), try Ctrl-Enter. Anyways, really my favorite editor is TDE (console editor, no folding, no insert completion, no spell check, no tags, but small size, menus, macros, syntax highlighting, multi-window, regex search/replace, grep-style file loading, dir browser, excellent configurability, public domain w/ C source for Win, DOS, Linux).

P.S. VIM does support FASM syntax highlighting (':syntax enable' then ':set syntax=fasm' since it defaults to GAS).

P.P.S. Jed, Vile, and JASSPA MicroEmacs are good editors, too.
