Notepad++ a free and useful tool

Notepad++ is a free source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License.

Almost every day I use Notepad++ for text file editing and from time to time to look at source files like Javascript and CSS. It supports syntax highlighting for various languages, which I find very useful. Notepad++ supports various plugins and does also have a column editing mode. To enable column editing mode just hold the "Alt" key and select the text with your left mouse button.

Notepad++ can be found here.

Some useful features of Notepad++:
  • Syntax Highlighting and Syntax Folding
  • Find and replace over multiple documents
  • File comparison
  • Zoom in and zoom out
  • Multi-Language environment supported
  • Drag-and-drop
