            Update: http://e-texteditor.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=13090#13090

            When you say you would like “E without Cygwin”, do you mean you would like the option to remove Cygwin and/or prevent it from installing entirely, thus accepting the fact that most, if not all, of the Bundle Commands will cease to work? Or do you mean you would like all of the Bundle Commands that are provided with E to work in Windows Native mode, thus completely negating the need for Cygwin?

            Given that most, if not all, of the Bundles are a product of the Textmate community, rather than the TextMate developer, I think it is unrealistic to expect the one and only E developer, i.e., Alexander, to port them all. Additionally, who would then port any subsequent updates to the TextMate bundles? Really, it should be up to the E community to port any Bundles it feels could benefit from being “Windows Native”.

            @Jan, there's a fix for the problem you're experiencing in the FAQ.

            adamv has said he will be working on a MSys install + native ruby/perl/python feature:

            E already works without Cygwin - it's the bundles that require it. You can write bundle commands that use the Windows shell and native versions of Ruby or Python - simply select Windows Native as the environment. The reason Cygwin is required for the provided bundles is that they have been ported from TextMate, which requires a bash shell and the rest of the GNU utils that come with *nix.

              This can be done, but it’s confusing as you have to open the search panel with “CTRL-SHIFT-F” instead of just “CTRL-F”. Thinking about a better UI for this…

              charlesroperAdmincharlesroper (Admin, E Text Editor) commented  · 

              An extra tickbox in the search dialog/bar for "Search/Replace In Selection" would make sense. If there is no selection, it could be greyed out.

                Yeah, I agree. This is particularly useful in situation where I have assets stored outside the main repo directory. Things like documents, Photoshop assets and the like that I don't want in the repo.

                  TortoiseHg comes with hgtk.exe, which launches the various commands. For example:

                  http://tortoisehg.bitbucket.org/manual/0.9/commit.html#from-command-line

                  It would be very easy to create commands that could make use of hgtk. You could create a whole TortoiseHg bundle of them.

                  You can automate TortoiseSVN and so you could create commands that do what you require:

                  http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-automation.html

                  Not sure about TortoiseHG or TortoiseGit.

                      Understood. I can get confusing at times. Once you really do understand how it works, though, it’s invaluable. It’s worth learning it. Try leaving the panel open docked to the side of the windows and play around with it to see how it grows and branches. This is how I learnt to deal with it.

                      charlesroperAdmincharlesroper (Admin, E Text Editor) commented  · 

                      Here's a tip: if you just want to mimic 'normal' undo/redo functionality using the undo history pane, simply look for the longest branch and only use the nodes found there. So, for example, I hit Ctrl-Y and Undo History appears; I look for the longest brance and follow the nodes down that in order to redo my most recent changes.

                        Yeah, you're right. It's only working intermittantly for me. Seems like an issue that could easily be fixed if Alexander were to queue the operations in the right order: make sure the command is run first, then the save. If I hit Ctrl-S a few times, then the * still hangs about, but the file does get saved.

                        charlesroperAdmincharlesroper (Admin, E Text Editor) commented  · 

                        Hrm, yes, I see what you mean, sorry about that. The fix is simple thankfully: set the Save drop-down in the bundle editor to Current File.

                          While you wait for the Linux version of E, why not consider Vim in the meantime? Some people are even switching from TextMate to Vim:

                          http://weblog.jamisbuck.org/2008/10/10/coming-home-to-vim

                          On Windows, I quite like Cream:
