Yeah, XCode or TextWrangler for me, neither of which will give you
anything more than syntax highlighting and a function/m,ethod
dropdown. Actually, with a bit of work you can make XCode integrate
with MTASC, but the concept of software building as it exists in XCode
doesn't convert well to ActionScript projects. I prefer manual
compilation with a simple build script - then again, I'm the kind of
person who doesn't use bookmarks, instead relying on the history
autocomplete function of the address bar.
