Programmer's Notepad is an open-source text editor that I found to be very similar to the more popular Notepad++. In addition to basic text editing tools, it also offers many features that are especially useful for programmers, software testers, etc. It is a small application that runs on all the popular Windows versions.
I was surprised to see the great number of improvements that this version of Programmer’s Notepad comes with. Most of them are requests submitted by other users of this application. In addition to many interface enhancements, Programmer’s Notepad focuses on providing correct schemes for each of the supported programming languages. Also, a lot of bugs have been fixed in version 2.3 of the application.
Although, there are other popular open-source text editors like Notepad++ and AkelPad, Programmer’s Notepad stands as a great alternative to them.
