emacs

   A popular Unix editor, written by Richard Stallman, founder of the Free Software Foundation. The name emacs is a contraction of "editing macros," but it is much more than a simple text editor and includes extensions for all sorts of common tasks, ranging from compiling and debugging programs to reading and sending e-mail. You can even extend emacs yourself as the editing commands are written in the Lisp programming language.
