Notepad++ is a generic source code editor (it tries to be anyway) and Notepad replacement written in C++ with the win32 API. The aim of Notepad++ is to offer a slim and efficient binary with a totally customizable GUI.

It is a free source code editor which supports several programming languages running under the M$ Windows environment.Notepad++ is a great freeware replacement for Notepad.
This project, based on Scintilla edit component (a very powerful editor component) and written in C++ with pure win32 api (i.e. without MFC, that ensures the higher execution speed and smaller size of the program), is under the GPL Licence.
This project is mature. However, as you can see it a one-man-project, therere still some bugs and missing features.
If you have any question or suggestion about this project, please drop me a mail, Ill love to hear from you. As well, if you have any feature request, you can always do the demand, but theres no warranty that Ill implement it.
