Is there any text editor with highighting for cshell scripts that includes code folding? (Preferable something with a less steep learning curve than vim and emacs)

I haven't been able to find anything that fits cshell scripts, many offer highlighting for bash or c scripts, but neither of that properly fits cshell scripts. I normally use Kate and Komodo which have the features I need for other scripts, but not for cshell scripts.

  • There's a reason for that. C Shell scripts are syntactically ambiguous. Use the C Shell for interactive work, certainly, but don't try writing scripts in it. Really. (Want ten or more reasons?) – roaima Jun 15 '18 at 12:46
  • Unfortunately I have a huge pile of someone else's code that I have to work on which is written in cshell and can't avoid it. With C shell scripts being syntactically ambigous, is there ANY highlighting mode that would fit the best? I've only so far managed to make some sense out of choosing shell highlighting in gedit which highlights the code "sort of alright" but doesn't offer code folding. – Layla_K Jun 15 '18 at 14:02
