I am looking for a free programming editor for my iBook G4.

I was going to to get the lightswitch trial until I looked at the sys requirements (needs Intel CPU).

Can someone please point me to a free editor that will work with a G4 iBook running 10.4.11 and supports html, css, javascript, php and c# syntax highlighting?

    Lightswitch also requires Windows... – Jason Aug 7 '12 at 2:24
  • yes... at the time, I was very near ready to install some linux with wine should all else fail. And very tired. But you are right of course, it requires Windows. – MoD Aug 7 '12 at 8:23

TextWrangler will do. It's a freeware, but you probably need to search for an older version.

  • Thanks for your help. I'm going to try the linked VIM from the other post first, but if that doesn't work I'll start looking for legacy TextWrangler versions and post a direct link at the end of the topic if I find one. – MoD Aug 7 '12 at 8:30
