Once in a while I run into a real gem of a program and can’t believe it’s not better known.
I’m not a programmer but I play one on the web. 🙂
As such I need to work with text files and read them as a real programmer would, recognizing line numbers, programming formatting, and comparing file differences.
I have used Context free version for some time fairly happily but it is a little lacking of features in the free version.
I used Win32PAD and found it fast, but the line numbering doesn’t stay with the line when you word wrap.
Now I did a little searching today for a free file compare program and ran into PSPad at NoNags.com. This is truly a *GEM*!
Not only is it doing normal text editing wonderfully but it has a file compare feature built right in. I has FTP built right in. It has excellent help files (in many languages) built right in. A spell checker built right in.
If you want a replacement for Windows Notepad just about anything will do but this program has everything I can imagine any normal human will ever need.
In my book it’s five star *****
