    Hi - you could check if there is a Mac version of the gvi (Graphical VI) this would support multiple programing languages...

    I'd recommend Textmate, works surprisingly well, not on the flashy side though.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    Yes, and it's good and there are plug-ins.

    Also, the editor within Xcode, which is Apple's IDE, is very good and includes support for shell scripts and various other scripting languages. That's also free.

    I bought TextMate a few weeks back. In terms of value for money, this is about as good as it gets, easily the best text editor I've ever come across, and it actually got me to switch away from Vi. The "bundles" system it uses is incredible, and the tab-complete that is used in a lot of places saves a lot of time. I haven't found a feature that I'd like that is missing from TextMate.
