    Text editor that makes numbered backups?

    I'm using Lubuntu 12.10 which comes with Leafpad. If I edit a text file, no backup is created and there doesn't seem to be any obvious way to create backups.

    I'd like to use a text editor that can create backups preferably retaining multiple backups. In other words, if I edit temp.txt once and save it, the latest version would temp.txt and the backup would be something like temp.bak.1. The next edit would result in temp.bak.2 and so on.

    (I'm not interested in an editor than brings in KDE dependencies.)

    Shortened urls: See point #11 here. And clicking on them could be risky.
    Use ubuntu-support-status with caution.
