What is Notepad++
Notepad++ is a robust, open-source code editor and replacement for the standard Notepad application. It is freely available under the GNU General Public License, embodying the principles of both "free speech" and "free beer". Designed to operate within the MS Windows environment, Notepad++ supports a wide range of programming languages, making it a versatile tool for developers.
Built upon the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++ is crafted in C++ and leverages the pure Win32 API and STL. This architecture ensures superior execution speed and a compact program size. By meticulously optimizing various routines while retaining user-friendly features, Notepad++ contributes to the reduction of global carbon dioxide emissions. Its efficient utilization of CPU resources allows computers to throttle down, leading to decreased power consumption and a more environmentally sustainable approach to computing.
I hope you enjoy Notepad++ as much as I enjoy coding it.
