I use a commercial editor called Crisp, which is unfortunately a
commercial product. It runs on almost any platform:
I have found several editor features a great help in PostgreSQL
programmable macro language
list of functions in the file
tags jump to function definition
They are not a big deal when you are making localized changes. In fact,
I just used a character-mode editor for those, but when I have to
analyze the code or make massive changes, those features make it easier.
The screenshot I listed has the functions listed on the left, the
cross-reference information at the bottom, and a colorized main editor
