An important feature is "syntax highlighting". FWIW there's nothing
wrong with using a GUI editor and keeping your goal in mind, you
probably should take a look at IDEs. Non-GUI editors are more or
less only required for emergencies, in the worst case only Vi is
available on UNIXoid platforms, so it's worse to use it for a few
days, before possibly migrating to another editor. YMMV!
