What font do you program in?

Post icon  Posted 28 December 2008 - 07:29 PM

What font do you all program in? I've seen people program in many different kinds of fonts and colors, and this is a random and interesting question. I personally use Terminal at 6 points with normal colors (white background and the standard colors for syntax highlighting).

I use something so long as it's monospaced, and about 12-16pt. Colors are whatever IDE default's are.

I use good old Courier New at 8pt (that's what VS default is). I could care what the colors are, but i HAVE to have some sort of syntax highlighting.

I find Verdana at size 12 really easy for me to read, though I enjoy anything sans serif :)

I usually use 10pt Courier New, with a black background and everything else (except for strings and numbers) steel blue.

Terminal
Only on Windows computers though, on Macs I use the defaults.

I definitely wouldn't use anything non-mono-spaced (yes, I made up the word).

10pt Courier new. Haven't looked at anything else though because its the default font for Kate in Kubuntu and works great for me.
