Vital, Inc. has announced CRiSP, an "editing workbench" for the Mac that let developers edit files in just about any manner (native Cocoa, X11 support plus console mode, etc.) and practically anywhere (local files, files over FTP and STFP) in an integrated environment.
CRiSP is targeted to developers interested in high-powered text editing and programming options, and it comes with a platform independent macro language. Its features include columnar editing; drag and drop support; Finder support; syntax coloring with support for over 80 languages, including Objective-C, AppleScript, C/C++/Java, TCL, Perl; embedded script language support; large file (8GB or more) support; tagging and cross-referencing browsing support; pop-up tooltips for function calls as a user types code; project tools that let a developer determine what files are part of the project; keystroke macro; FTP editing; automatic backup; multi-file editing and search; C/HTML/XML source code beautifier; user defined language and templates; hex editing and outlining; infinite undo and redo; and keyboard emulation that's designed to eliminate the need to learn another keyboard layout.
CRiSP runs on Mac OS X 10.1 and higher. A free 21-day evaluation of CRiSP for the Mac is available at the Vital Web site. Additionally, CRiSP works with such operating systems as Windows, Linux, SUN, HP-UX, AIX, FreeBSD, and IRIX.
