Notepad ++ 7 is a free source code editor that supports several programming languages ​​running under the M $ Windows environment. Notepad ++ is designed to be a freeware replacement for Notepad.
This project is based under the GPL License, based on the Scintilla editor component (a very powerful editor component) and written in C ++ with pure win32 api (ie without MFC, which ensures the higher execution speed and smaller size of the program).

This project is mature. However, as you can see it’s a one-man-project, there are still some bugs and missing features. If you have any questions or suggestions about this project, please drop me a mail, I’ll love to hear from you. As well, if you have any feature requests, you can always do the demand, but there is no guarantee that I will implement it.
