CRiSP - Best Unix Text Editor

"When I switched from working on DOS and Windows platforms to working on UNIX, I was quickly confronted with the problem of finding a text editor that could match the power and flexibility of the Microsoft M editor...CRiSP was the only programmers editor that: worked straight out of the box...and had an extendible command language."

Terrific Brief Like Editor On Linux

"CRiSP overall is a terrific text editor. It contains the changes to Brief which I would have liked...It is nice to be able to at last have a good BRIEF like editor for Linux machines. In my reports to the minerals exploration industry, I have extolled the virtues of CRiSP."

CRiSP - Productivity Enhancer

"CRiSP is the only UNIX text editor I've seen that would allow a DOS/Windows user to be immediately productive. But it also has a seemingly unlimited list of power-user features. I like it so much at work that I bought it to use at home (under Linux)."

Easy To Use Yet Powerful Text Editor

"I am a newcomer to Linux, and I was very disappointed with "standard" UNIX editors like vi and emacs. The user interface is so unfriendly and the feature set is so antiquated. I heard about CRiSP on the comp.editors newsgroup and downloaded a free demo...It's just wonderful! Thoroughly modern, easy to use, powerful, flexible; it's what a UNIX programmer's editor should be."

Best Programmers Text Editor

"CRiSP is the best programmers text editor I have ever used. It is great for programming, script writing, and editing huge text files. It has made me much more efficient at file manipulation and has made my work tasks much easier."

Brilliant Colorization Support

"After looking for a good text editor for UNIX for several years I finally found one that met my needs in CRiSP. I have used vi, emacs, xcoral (not to mention edt, teco, brief, tpu, etc, etc.) but prefer using CRiSP for two main (but not exclusive) reasons. First is the language sensitive syntax colorization and second for it's ease of use (brief editor like functionality)."

CRiSP Is Best Text Editor Ever Used

"I have been using the CRiSP editor for about 3 years. It is by far one the best text editors I have ever used. It is very reliable, and I have yet to lose any data using it. It makes the editing and compiling process effortless, and it frees up more time for other tasks. The colorization, buffering, and column editing features are well worth the cost of this software."

CRiSP - Finest Text Editor

"CRiSP is the finest text editor I have EVER USED! It adapts itself to how you want to work. Vital's implementation is truly elegant. CRiSP is MUCH better than BRIEF. Use it for HTML and Java Editing."

CRiSP - Great For Editing Very Large Files

"CRiSP is awesome, especially for anyone who likes to use Brief on the PC, and hates vi. I use it for all my code development and maintenance tasks. It's also great for editing binary files or very large files, or files which have very long lines, which cause other editors to choke."

CRiSP - Powerful vi Emulation And A Lot More

"I have a confession to make. I'm a vi user. I've tried other programmers editors but my fingers just could not make the switch. All the text editors I tried forced me to learn all new commands...Then I found CRiSP. I was saved, it has a wonderful vi emulation mode.

CRiSP - Well Worth The Price

"I have been developing using CRiSP for almost a year now, and have found it quite a time-saver and productivity tool. Granted it's more expensive than vi, or GNU emacs, but it also makes them look like the sick Stegosaurus (or was it a Bronto-saurus?) in Jurassic Park."

CRiSP - Best UNIX Programming Editor

"I was given the job of finding the best UNIX programmers editor on the market to oem with our product. I installed and worked with all the packages I could find. CRiSP text editor was easily the best solution available."


"After using Brief for many years, I did not look forward to learning vi or Emacs on my UNIX machine. CRiSP came to the rescue. The program has now grown and matured to the point where it has become much better than Brief ever was."
