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 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 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,
resulting in a greener environment.
