. . . IN A CRUMMY EDITOR!!
Sometimes we forget how SHITTY a dev experience can get when you’re using a crummy code editor.
I have a huge habit of using CTRL+SHIFT together to select “one word at a time”
For instance copy this code into IDLE
x = 'IDLE exhibits "shitty"' \ ' behavior'
Now in IDLE, start at the ‘x’, hold down CTRL and press RIGHT. It jumps STRAIGHT to the I in IDLE. Now hold shift down as well. While holding CTRL+SHIFT, press right 3 times, noting what gets highlighted with each step. See how on the third press, it highlights THE WHOLE DADGAM LINE? This makes me furious.
I’d recommend Pydev for eclipse. SO much better. Its really great.
