This is not in Timothee's original list, but the feature I seek
most in a text editor is keystroke functionality. I use VIM
(which now includes a nice Stata color-coding scheme) because,
having lived off the old -vi- for many years, I can find, change,
move and otherwise edit large amounts of code more efficiently
than I ever could using a mouse+keystroke editor. However, it
seems that no other editors are pursuing this kind of functionality,
or at least don't advertise it.

There are a number of text editors that do a fine job integrating with
Stata.  I personally use NoteTab [ http://www.notetab.com ] which is
programmable and there is a clip library available at [
http://www3.ns.sympatico.ca/d.elliott/Stata.clb ] which contains
commands to run / do /do selection and a number of Stata-friendly
functions.  It is a multi-paned editor so you can have many do / ado
files, logs and such open at once.
