Part IV: Scripting and Development > Text Editing on Mac OS X

Chapter 17. Text Editing on Mac OS X

Like all Unix systems, Mac OS X is driven by its text files. Between various programs' text-based configuration and preference files (often rendered in XML), program source code, the Makefiles, and source code of freshly downloaded software, it pays to know your options with opening, editing, and creating text files.

This chapter covers Mac OS X's attitude toward text files and the many editors it includes to help you create and edit them.
