Hi Luiz and Jeff,

Thanks a lot making the discussion of cross platform GLPK/GMLP alive.

I think GLPK/GMLP needs a cross platform IDE take advantage of ODBC
capabilities of Mathprog in reading and writing tables in databases
and spreadsheets.

I like Gusek very much. It is my "Swiss Army knife" in Windows. I open
almost everything with GUSEK and see what is the content of the such

I think SciTE is out of the question now. Officially, it would NOT
compile in Mac OS X. I emalied Neil Hodgson (author of SciTE) and
Mike Lischke (SciTE for Mac OS X) regarding how to compile the latest
SciTE 2.03, both replied saying that it would not compile in Mac OS X.

I have been toying the idea that probably Komodo Edit would be good
candidate for cross platform GLPK/MathProg IDE. R package has good
plugin for Kodomot Edit (SciViews-K). But Komodo Edit seems hard to
use when you are looking for advance features i.e. syntax lighting,
compiling or running and getting the results.

I just encountered TextAdept last night will googling  for scintilla
and scite software. And now, Geany as mentioned by Luiz.

Luiz, which one is easier to port, TextAdept or Geany?

But I think Geany has more advance features just looking at the
screenshot - output pane - status, compiler, messages, scribble,

Good luck in thesis writing.


Regards, Noli
