[Moderator note: this is the primary Notepad++ thread. View database entry]

----

Amazingly, although one of the more popular database entries with a popularity rating of over 90%, OSS Notepad++ (Notepad Plus Plus, for alternate search purposes; database entry is at http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=539) doesn't have its own forum topic, an omission I intend to remedy with the present post (I'm making it in "Discussion" because it was originally submitted by TPFC's own founder, but I was unable to trace the original post).

    Notepad++ is a free (as in "free speech" and also as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License. Based on the 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.

Current Notepad++ natively portable version (v6.6.2) can be downloaded from http://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/.

As much as I want to love Notepad++ I just can't. It's text editor component is excellent but everything else is a bit lacklustre or just ugly from it's FTP to it's options window. My chosen editor, PSPad, has excellent tools but it's editor component is pretty old and has issues.

It has some flaws, but I've found it to be unbelievably stable and handles almost everything I've thrown at it with the low-end coding work that I do (mostly HTML and weird Apache script stuff).

Never knew there is a minimalist version available (the executable is identical, but no themes, no plugins, no updater, no locales). I simply love it! And it seems to be stealth.
Q: Why isn't the complete version stealth (haven't fully test it)?

i like the docswitcher on the left hand side of the GUI. very powerful if you're say compiling information from the internet into many different text files. dont have to mess with the row of tabs accross the top. would be better if they allowed some folders to be at the top of the docswitcher though and also allow you to just open every txt file in a specific folder. it does allow to save and reload sessions, which is good.

This custom version of Notepad++ 6.6.8 has no easter egg quotations. This custom version includes "notepad++.exe" and "SciLexer.dll" files built from the latest versions of Scientilla and Boost. Both binary and source files are included.

What makes an application "stealth"?

For the purpose for this website, "stealth" means when an application is launched, used and terminated properly, it does not leave behind any entries in the registry or filesystem. Certain exceptions are permitted. For example, registry entries that are created/updated by Windows for the application (eg. MRU entries for dialog boxes, DirectX entries for DirectX-based apps), or temp files created in the official "Temp" folders are not taken into consideration. Note: "Stealth" does not mean non-traceability! In fact, it is quite unlikely you can hide your activities on a Windows machine from a capable system administrator.

As soon as ALT is pressed ,the arrows freeze .

The app page says it's not stealth. I found in the comments that, you need a blank "doLocalConf.xml" file to make it stealth. I downloaded the latest version 6.4.8 and they have included that blank file inside the zip. So, I think it's stealth now. Can anybody check and confirm this?
