If I use notepad I get very few linebreaks but I know they're there because I was going to make a thread asking about that but when i posted an example super long line in to the forum it had line breaks.

What is a good text editor for viewing lua code?

Thanks

Notepad++ is my editor of choice.

Another vote for notepad++. It allows you to search every file you've got open, which is a big help when you are first starting and don't know where things are. Plus it's waaay faster to load than LuaEdit.

Sublime Text can search in the whole folder (for people who dont know grep ;> ) and does many many neat things, liek a truly great file search/preview/open mode (ctrl+p)
Try it you'll love it :)

It took me a little time to get it working right, but I use Code::Blocks. Once I got the lexer working, it has syntax highlighting for Lua, and it can display multiple files at once. It'd be nice if it would check my syntax though. XD

It can search in a single file, open files, or all files in a project, which can be helpful when I'm trying to figure out exactly which file contains the call I'm looking for. I think it also has the option for search-and-replace.
