Chromebook's are ARM, aren't they? Sublime doesn't run on ARM.. –  mreq May 26 at 8:47

You can't run sublime as it's not build for ARM processors - see sublimetext.userecho.com/topic/…. –  mreq May 26 at 12:07
    
@mreq - your's is the correct answer - please answer it and then Anurag can & should mark this as the correct answer. There is very little point in having the current answer marked as accepted when it is very clearly wrong. –  fossfreedom May 30 at 8:08

ARM builds are wanted, but not available.

On chromebook ?? but how. anyways could please suggest some other alternative to it. –  Anurag-Sharma May 26 at 9:19
    
Sorry, I did not know if chromebooks were arm. As for alternatives, you may try geany, gedit, vim, nano. I hope you've tried gedit, it's good on its own. I have written many c programs with it. –  Tatakai Wasumi May 26 at 17:08
