    I searched the forum but didn't find any good hits for what I'm looking for...

    I'm looking for a good editor for C++. I'd rather not have it be a full IDE because I need to compile via terminal and the Make utility.

    Here's what I'm looking for:
    - Open many files in one window (with a list of them along the side or something)
    - Decent C++ syntax highlighting

    I really like Smultron but it will use darn near 500MB when I open up 80-90 relatively small source files.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Another vote for TextMate. TextWrangler is decent, but TextMate is worth the upgrade, IMO.

    Yet another vote for TextMate, you can even wire things up so that TextMate can kick off your command-line builds for you with a keystroke.
