Advanced code and text editor.
Notepad ++ review by Download.hr Team on 16.04.2015
is a free (as in "free speech" and additionally as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad ++
replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is regulated by GPL License.
Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad ++
is written in C and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad ++
is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, leading to a more eco-friendly environment.
Behind a clean face and busy but efficient toolbar, Notepad ++
is a wonder of features and options. One favorite: Default Directory has two choices, Follow current document and Remember last directory. Another: The "old, out-of-date" desktop icon is a setup option.
It's possible for you to set Notepad ++
not to use %APPDATA% but instead to load or write config files from the installation directory; this is useful when running Notepad ++
from a USB device.
comes loaded with useful plug-ins plus a Plug-in Manager. But we could also select a startup option to load plug-ins from AppData -- a potential security issue that Notepad ++
simply recommends for experienced users.
Download and install Notepad ++
safely and without concerns.
