Tide is a real-time text editor for the ROX desktop, based on Thomas
Leonard's Edit (although Tide may seem a bit backwards compared to
Edit). Instead of the user manually 'saving' a file, Tide automatically
writes the file out as you edit it. Tide focuses on controlled
minimalism, particularly noticable in the size of the preferences
dialog. It is intended primarily for programmers, featuring syntax
highlighting, and a jump-to-line function.
