Notepad2 A Better Replacement For Notepad



Notepad2 is intended to be a replacement for the Notepad program that is included as part of Windows. Like Notepad, Notepad2 is small, fast, and has few frills. It does, however, add some functionality such as colour syntax highlighting that many people will find useful, especially those that have to edit the odd HTML page or script. You can select the level of zoom and select the editing font. Notepad2 supports Unicode, UTF-8, Unix and Mac text files.

The Notepad2 program is largely based on source code from the Scintilla Text Editor (SciTE), also available on this CD. SciTE also has tabs which facilitates editing of multiple files. It also has further options for configuration, but is not quite as simple to use as Notepad2.
