    I started using Sublime at work and have grown kinda fond of it. It's not free, but I do appreciate their minimap of the text file and the ability to open up multiple windows on the same file. This is useful for me since I can have one view with the code all unfolded and a separate view where everything is neatly rolled up, this has not only helped me keep track of little helper functions I create it also forces me to maintain a relatively sane naming scheme. It's multi-platform and I'm more productive with it.

    One might argue you need to refactor your code.

      So that it's split into multiple functions and even harder to view and understand?

      Job security FTW! 😉

        No, so that it's easier to understand and to maintain, and so that each function can be unit tested.

        Just use a language other than old versions of old languages like C or FORTRAN and you can have identifiers that actually identify instead of having to guarantee uniqueness of short names. Much easier to read a stack of properly named functions called on properly named arguments than having to keep the entire state of the nested inlined basic blocks in mind.
