CRiSP Available For Mac Platform

According to Robert Oakes, "When it comes to editing, the current tools on Mac cannot do the heavy lifting like CRiSP. CRiSP is an ideal tool for developers and programmers interested in sophisticated editing options; it is not a graphics tool or a Desktop publishing program. Editing, searching / replacing on multi-gigabyte files, is much faster and better than any current editor for Mac OS."

"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.
