Source code editor[edit]

Delete. 99.99% of text editors are "source code editor". Some codes like CSS are not techically "source code". The content in this article can be found in text editor, list of text editors and comparison of text editors. --Minghong 16:48, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  • Weak keep. The article says it's a specific kind of text editor, with particular features for editing source code. Martg76 17:31, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep valid encyclopedic topic. The fact that the article is not perfect is not the reason to delete. Grue 18:07, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. If there is not enough to make this a separate article, then redirect to text editor, but there's no good reason to delete. -Rholton 20:06, Mar 10, 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep and expand; one can include many programs and explanations in this article. Tygar 23:56, Mar 10, 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep, it's helpful. Wyss 00:57, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep for above reasons. --Ryan! | Talk 01:02, Mar 11, 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep, cleanup and expand. Megan1967 05:28, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete, already better covered in text editor. Every text editor can be used as a source code editor. Radiant! 08:46, Mar 11, 2005 (UTC)
  • Merge with text editor, don't delete. JIP | Talk 08:51, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep and allow for organic growth. Garners over 28,000 googles. VfD is not cleanup. --GRider\talk 18:51, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep Rich Farmbrough 23:23, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep, and this should have been discussed on Talk:Source code editor first. Not all text editors are designed for editing source code (eg. notepad.exe, which even insists on changing all file suffixes to .txt, grrr!), and not all source code editors need be good for editing plain text (they might not include a spellchecker, for instance).

    • Not entirely true. Notepad will save with the same extention if you ctrl+s or, when creating a new document, changing the file filter to "all filetypes" and type the extention yourself. HTH --BesigedB (talk) 18:54, 15 Mar 2005 (UTC)
      • Oh yeah! I'd totally forgotten ^^;; . Gosh it's been ages since I ever tried to code under windows. Thank goodness. :-) Kim Bruning 22:15, 15 Mar 2005 (UTC)
        • Only insane people would code in notepad. --BesigedB (talk) 09:30, 16 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. —Markaci 2005-03-14 T 09:30 Z
  • Keep. The article has potential. Source code editors have (or should have) features other editors don't. --A D Monroe III 23:39, 15 Mar 2005 (UTC)
