TEA is the GTK2-based text editor for Linux and *BSD. With an ultimate small size TEA provides you hundreds of functions.
TEA depends on GTK 2.4 (or higher) and, optionally, on Aspell. TEA can also utilize the power of GtkSourceView (as the text editing engine).
With GtkSourceView TEA has more advanced syntax highlighting, but it makes TEA depended on some additional libraries such as GnomeVFS and libGConf. To build TEA with GtkSourceView support, use./ configure --enable-chai to configure the source properly. And for the *original* TEA, simple run the configure script without any parameters.
