Request for Comments/Advice on Useful Editors for MATLAB Development

Despite the age of the MATLAB product, now 15 years old since 1984,
the built-in editor and development environment remains rather
primitive compared to other IDEs.

For example, there's a fundamental contradiction between the practice
of promoting the use and coding of multiple small files in MATLAB
with each file corresponding to a function, and then the glaring
absence in the built-in editor of a multi-file global search and
replace utility. So the developer has to do a search and replace
manually in each separate file where he wants to change a common word
or variable name used throughout the code for clarity of reading.

What editors have you found useful? Have you been able to successfully
integrate them with the MATLAB debugger? Do they provide version
control and automatic date-time stamping?
