An option to automatically save documents every now and then.

Tim has summed up examples from other code editors:

emacs does an autosave after a few hundred key strokes, gedit can be configured to auto-save every few minutes. kate and emacs save a temp file with the current state of the file while editing, so in case of a crash, one can recover the current state of the file


Richard Wentk suggested:

it would be useful if I could persuade the IDE to save a document at every cmdPeriod


I'd suggest auto-save on cmd-. as an option, but not a replacement for timed backups. I hardly ever hit cmd-. so that wouldn't be useful to me if it's the only way to do auto save.

Also very important to auto-save to a temp file, as Tim suggested.
