TextMate: Power Editing for the Mac Review by Raj Jammalamadaka

This book is for people who have a Mac and are willing to invest in a text editor called TextMate. This is a must read book for people who want to use TextMate. The author begins with the very basics of TextMate and chapter by chapter he builds up on the different features of TextMate. Once you get used to the power/convenience of using TextMate, it is hard not to use it. For example, here are some of the commands that I found useful:

Apple-key + R (builds and runs the code in the current active window.) ctrl + shift + N (shows the number of lines, words and bytes in the current document.) ctrl + shift + C (math mode, pretty useful for performing quick and dirty math) todo + tab (gives a commented section in which the list of things to be done can be listed) Apple + / (for commenting/uncommenting code) head + tab (gives a commented header section to write the description of the code).

As mentioned before, I highly recommend this book to anyone who is considering using TextMate.

Thanks, Raj
