Linux editor's macro support

At work I'm working a lot with text files (data that is comma delimited, ...) and usually I have to change something in the files, like adding comma at the end of every line, ... So I need an editor with macro support. Well, with macros that can be recorded.
My favourite text editor is vi, but I didn't find that functionality in it. You can write a map command for it, but it is time consuming and not exactly what I want.
Since I'm using GNOME I've tried gedit and no macro support there too. :((
Then I tried Emacs. You can record key strokes, but you cannot link them to a keyboars shourtcut. At least I don't know how. :)))
Since I program in Java a lot I thought maybe some Java editor will help me. I've tried NetBeans (my main development environmet) and Jedit, but they don't feel like text editor to me. :))
Then I though: "Google is your friend." and it was. :))) I've found nedit editor. There you can record a macro and link it to a keyboard shourtcut. I has an ugly GUI, but it does the job fast. I'm happy with it. For now at least. :)))
Are any other editors that know macorded macros out there?

SelfCheckout progress

My last post is old :))) 
This is because the work I've been doing. I had to do some catch up on the work I didn't do because of the "secret project"  :))).
Now I also have to so some work on the communication between our application and the government customs application. It appears that our government is pushing XML into their processes. Interesting... The problem is that the specifications they gave out on how the XML document should look like is not exactly the same as their system want to receive it. The second problem is that when you send an XMl document you don't always get an answer back what was wrong with it. Oh, well... In couple of weeks everything should be OK. :))
