I know a lot of people on the list use Linux, and Jed is an *excellent* 
editor for programming in C... it's all nice and color coded when it 
comes to reserved words, {}[]() characters, autoindents for you, and 
shows you were open brackets are when you type a close bracked, even 
warns you if there's a possible mismatch.  (It even makes timed backups 
of the file you're working on incase of whatever)..

(It also displays what line you're on at the bottom of the screen)
