It has just come to my (notably feeble) attention that something I wrote in the first post of this topic
is no longer true: Zabkat Editor2
, which is included in recent versions (at least from 18.104.22.168) of payware file manager Xplorer2
, can now be made portable simply by dropping a blank 'ed2.ini
' file in its folder (there's also a new command line switch, if you care for that)...
is a "no-frills", lightweight yet surprisingly handy notepad type editor offered both in 32 and 64bit versions (for a video demo, see http://www.zabkat.com/blog/wink/ed2.htm
is freeware, it doesn't have a separate download location, and has to be extracted from the Xplorer2
trial package -- downloadable at http://www.zabkat.com
. (BTW, the corresponding files are: ed2skin.png
After first run, the contents of 'ed2.ini
' provides further customization than what's available in Editor2
's GUI -- e.g., if you don't need the default text codepage conversion presented in the 'View | Use 1253 (ANSI Cyrillic)', you could change it to UTF-8 Unicode by altering it to 'nAltCP=65001'; there are also options to alter the default date an time formats ('szCustomDateFormat' and 'szCustomTimeFormat'; unfortunately the former doesn't include any separating space, nor does it honor a blank character a the end of the string, so I had to change it to "yyyy-MM-dd_" to get the ISO standard format).
