    yes they are great both!

    but it seems to me, that they can do much of the same stuff. So i was thinking, when is it best to use one over the other..

    i'd say it's good to learn both. grasshopper doesn't have nearly the same capabilities as scripting, but it's easier to learn and faster for getting successful results - important for a beginner. i started with rhinoscript a month or so before starting with grasshopper, and even just that made learning grasshopper a snap.
    learning both has sped up my work process infinitely. i'd recommend it for anyone who uses rhino a lot. i can do so much more than i could have without them both...

    Thx for the quick answer.

    lets hope David makes a more stable version of monkey..

    Hey im relativ new to rhinoscripting, and i was thinking
    Is rhinoscripting better to learn than grasshopper? Because i know a little to grasshopper, and when a start a modelling project i get confused, grasshopper or rhinoscripter to work in?

    I use monkey - its not the best editor I know, but it is very convenient to directly run your code in Rhino. AFAIK there was no monkey update since August 2007.
    For programming outside of Rhino I use vim, but that's something I would only recommend if you want to learn a lot of keyboard shortcuts... :-)

    Hi i used monkey editor on xp
    But now when i use vista, its kind a unstable when i browse methods.
    So i wanted to hear if anyone know why?, mayb there is a update to make it work better on vista x64.

    And what do you people use, monkey or context?
