I should have checked responses first before sending my previous
response. Oh well.
In any case, I am always on the lookout for small and fast applications.
Of course somethings are just complex, and so a simple tool is
just not up to the job, but as Einstein once said, "keep things as
simple as possible, but no simpler."
There are gross violations of the "simple tools" rule even in the Unix
world. Take emacs for one. I've never been able to figure out what
intriques people of that peace of bloatware. I've always hated it
because it's too complicated for the jobs I need to do. But the thing
that always gets to me is that it does not do tabs correctly. It
insists that spaces are what you want. When I've taken over the
world, after Bill Gates it will be the inventors of emacs
that will be shot. :-)
