Alternatively, to run it from the command-line:

Full name


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.
