NetBeans and Eclipse are heavyweight IDEs and both require that you create a
project before you can edit any files. They aren't very convenient for just
editing random text files. If you're comfortable with the command line there
are vi, emacs, joe, nano, and others. If you're accustomed to graphical
tools, TextMate is good, but it's $60. There are probably free ones

It's kind of weird that Macs don't come with a normal GUI text editor.
