You have to be careful about console-mode proggies, as to whether they run under things like tc (take command tab window), tci (v8 of the tab interface), or simply tcc (4nt etc), and whether you can actually use the menus etc (rather than having the tab interface hijack it. (It probably needs a menu item to pass an ALT through to the console.)

Another place to poke around on for still like this is TextEditors Wiki: HomePage. It's a wiki dedicated to text editors that is trying to document every text editor on any platform. (There are text editors for pocket calculators...) It's currently up to 1,928 entries.
