I came across this excellent site today – the post is actually a year old, but I am still new in the linux world, so this is a nice feature for me! http://www.micahcarrick.com/11-14-2007/gedit-symbol-browser-plugin.html

This is a “symbol browser”-plugin for gedit. I normally use leafpad for easy editing, but on the search for a workable and light IDE, I ended up installing gedit on my LXDE/Debian install using available plugins. Together with the Terminal emulator plugin and symbol browser, you actually get a fully blown IDE! I like it! Kudos to Micah Carrick.
