I've been using PSPad for a number of years now and really like it. I find it much easier to configure and less complicated to use than Notepad++, its closest competitor. Also, it is still very much in development. Latest version, as of 12 Sep 2012 is V4.5.7 (2449) released 22 Aug 2012. It is my go-to text editor for everything.
There are a few annoying things with it however. It comes with 27 pre-installed languages which can be hidden but not uninstalled and there are only 5 slots for custom languages. I think that most people would not have a problem with that since the installed languages are the most popular but if you work in a shop using more obscure languages, you might be out of luck.

I figured out how to uninstall the user-chosen (custom) languages but it takes a little work.
1: Open PSPad.ini (if you opened it with PSPad or if PSPad is running, save it as something else).
2: Delete the UserHighLighterName# value / data pair where the language is listed (the crosshatch is either null or a number between 1 and 4).
3: Delete the language key and all value / data pairs appertaining to it.
4: If PSPad is running, close it - then replace the PSPad.ini file with your changes. Voila! Your user-selected language slot is ready for another language!
I have posted a request to add a mechanism to do this automatically on the PSPad forum which is very active and the author of the software posts often - not what you'd expect from "dead" software.
BTW: Be cautious about using the installer - it seems to have had some problems. Use the zip file instead and unpack the files to a folder of your choice.

If it's ok, I'd just like to make a few more comments:
Viniciusban writes that PSPad has no comment-out tool. I don't know if that was true when he posted, but it has one now:
Format menu / Add/Remove Comment.

Webfork writes that it has trouble handling Very Large Files (VLF). In my experience, there are only a very few editors that can handle VLFs without absorbing all available RAM and none of them (with the possible exception of UltraEdit) is as full-featured as PSPad IMHO. If I must view / edit a VLF, I always use HiEditor from WinASM.net as it is made specifically to work on VLFs without hosing the computer. Unfortunately, it isn't offered on PortableFreeware.com but it is completely portable, writes all settings to an INI file and is very fast.

Tom mentions that the "stable" version is 4.5.4. Currently it is 4.5.6 and was uploaded about 11 months ago. Beta version, available from the forum and updated August 2012, is very stable - if the latest version is wanted, grab it from there.

PSPad has its problems but they all do - that's why there isn't just a single text editor that everybody uses. While Notepad++ is (undeniably) the most popular text editor for programmers, I find its interface somewhat obscure and its learning curve a bit too steep to make it useful to me. PSPad's interface is much cleaner and simpler and, if I don't use it for months at a time, I can come back to it without worrying about relearning anything - that's why PSPad is my text editor of choice.

On first search it gave an exception error, some weird characters on screen and locked up. Avoid.

goodandbad: might be a big file thing: program seemed to choke when I added a 1.3 gig WAV file. However, the batch processing for some basic normalizing operations was very, very useful. Definitely keep this around to do what Audacity won't.

rogerthedodger on 2012-11-07 01:14

Looked and sounded great, but batch processing only as .wav files, and you cant select multiple processing options. Maybe in the future this will be worthwhile, but not yet.

I like this program very much. I use it to make voice recordings for Asterisk.

Thanks for re-adding this great little app. I'll let the group know if it ever doesn't work on an OS that I am aware of. So far, so good.
