    Can someone recommend a free IDE (open source or for Windows) that supports
    automatic parethesis matching (when you type a right-parenthesis, it briefly
    highlights the corresponding matching parenthesis)?

    Maybe Textpad (www.textpad.com) can do the trick. It's not really an IDE,
    more like a plain text editor with all kinds of bells and whistles like
    customizable syntax highlighting, regex search&replace and bracket /
    parenthesis matching.

    It's shareware, however.
    Cheers.

    Try VIM for windows: http://www.vim.org/download.php#pc
    To match braces hit Alt+5 while at a parenthesis/brace.

    Or SourceEdit: http://www.sourcedit.com
    To match brace go into tools/options/keyboard/GoToMatchBrace and put in a
    shortcut.

    Most IDE's (for programming) have such facilities built in. You will
    probably just have to dig in the options/keyboard shortcuts to find them.
    Good luck!

    Gnu Emacs and Xemacs both have Win32 ports and sophisticated built-in
    program editor facilities with syntac coloring parenthesis and brace
    matching etc. and are fully free software
