Notepad++ is a free (as in "free speech" and also as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL Licence.

Based on a 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 friendlyness, Notepad++ is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener environment.

This project is mature. However, there may be still some bugs and missing features that are being worked on. If you have any questions or suggestions about this project, please post them in the forums. Also, if you wish to make a feature request, you can post it there as well. But there's no guarantee that I'll implement your request.

You're encouraged to translate Notepad++ into your native tongue if there's not already a translation present in the Download Section. And if you want, help translating Notepad++ official site into your native tongue would be greatly appreciated.

Features:

· Syntax Highlighting and Syntax Folding
· Supported languages : C, C++, Java, C#, XML, HTML, PHP, Javascript, RC resource file, makefile, ASCII art file (extension .nfo, doxygen, ini file, batch file, ASP, VB/VBS source files, SQL, Objective-C, CSS, Pascal, Perl, Python and Lua.

· WYSIWYG
· If you have a colour printer, print your source code (or whatever you want) in colour.

· Style Configurator
· For each style in every supported language, user can change the background/foreground colour, the font, font size and font style ( bold or Italic ) via the Style Configurator Dialog.

· User Define Syntax Highlighting
· It allows user to define his own language : not only the syntax highlighting keywords, but also the syntax folding keywords, comment keywords and the operators.

· Multi-Document
· You can edit several documents at the same time.

· Multi-View
· You have two views at same time. That means you can visualize (edit) 2 different documents at the same time. You can visualize (edit) in the 2 views one document at 2 different positions as well. The modification of document in one view will carry out in another view (i.e. you modify the SAME document when you are in clone mode).

· Regular Expression Search supported
· You can search one string in the document by using the regular expression.

· Full Drag 'N' Drop supported
· You can open a document by drag & drop. You can also move your document from a position (or even a view) to another by drag & drop.

· Dynamic position of Views
· The user can set the position of the views dynamically (only in 2 views mode : the splitter can be set in horizontal or in vertical).

· File Status Auto-detection
· If you modify or delete a file which opened in Notepad++, you will be notified to update your document (reload the file or remove the file).

· Zoom in and zoom out
· That's another fantastic function of Scintilla component.
· Multi-Language environment supported
· The Chinese, Japanese and Korean Windows environments are supported.
