Notepad++7.7 is a free source code editor (and Notepad replacement), which supports several programming languages, running under the Microsoft Windows environment. It also gives the extra functionality to define a user’s own language for the syntax folding and syntax highlighting. You can print your source code in color. It allows a user to edit the different document in the same time and even to edit the same document synchronizely in 2 different views. Notepad++ supports full drag and drop.
Notepad++ works with tabs, so it’s very easy to work with multiple files open at the same time. Comparing texts is therefore very easy, and every line is numbered. Font size in Notepad++ can be increased simply by holding CTRL and the mouse wheel used to zoom in. Pressing F12 makes the current tab float above everything else in Windows.
For coding, Notepad++ recognizes many programming languages, and will automatically make something like HTML much easier to view by color coding the text. It also has an excellent find and replaces tool. As a replacement for Window’s Notepad, NotePad++ is incredible, because it has so many more features and abilities, while still being incredibly lightweight and stable.
Difference between Notepad and Notepad++:
- Notepad is a text editor whereas Notepad++ is a source code editor.
- Notepad++ supports more languages than Notepad.
- It has a lot of features like spell checker, file comparison, zooming etc. unlike Notepad.
- Notepad can hold a file of capacity up to 64KB.
- It can hold multiple text files at the same time.
NotePad++ is a functional application, but it won’t win any prizes for looks, and many of the functions are only useful to programmers. However, anyone who writes text will find Notepad++ a useful tool, and much better than Windows Notepad. This project, based on the Scintilla edit component (a very powerful editor component), written in C++ with pure win32 api and STL (that ensures the higher execution speed and smaller size of the program), is under the GPL Licence.
