I'm not a programmer so I can't say that I have experience with this, 
but I would suggest Emacs.  It has extensions for just about any 
programming language.  There are both command line and X versions.  It's 
a huge set of packages though.  I really can't suggest anything other 
than that, but I think vim or a clone might have something similar.  
Both are very popular and should be available on any major distro.  You 
didn't say what distro you're running but I've not heard of any that 
don't at least include one or the other.
