EDIT: EditBone is now in TPFC's database (see http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=2706).

Scouring the Web for a new 'notepad' application, just happened upon EditBone which I think deserves mentioning here...
www.bonecode.com webmaster wrote:
Powerful text editing tool that comes with syntax highlighting support for over 50 languages and scripts, 22 different styles, a handy file comparison feature and support for multiple directories and search results.

It should be added that, although it has only a x32 version, it's open source and from my cursory testing, it has a (skinable) modern interface, consists of a single executable with an adjacent folder of code examples, and seems to save all it's settings in an INI file in the program folder. Download from link above or http://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-tools/Text-editors/EditBone.shtml.

Any idea what the license is? It's clearly listing the source, but Softpedia says Freeware.

Since the project is also hosted at Google (http://code.google.com/p/bonecode-editbone/) and source is freely available, the lack of any licensing terms would make anyone in good faith assume Public Domain Open Source until further notice (Google Code enforces Open Source licenses on the projects it hosts, but I don't know which ones).

BTW, EditBone is now up to v4.2.2, supporting two-way file compare, macro recorder, document statistics, file system browser, search in files, in-file bookmarks, file encoding (ANSI, UNICODE, etc.), and columnar selection. Judging from documents in the 'examples' folder the highlighter supports the following document types: java, html, tex, asm, c, cpp, for, java, pas, pl, asm, c, cpp, cs, css, html, java, js, pas, pl, py, rb, sh, sql, tcl, tex, vb, xml.

I see the author is Finnish. I could ask him about the license.

On Google Code it states look in the source code, which I did but can't seem to find and reference of what licence the code is under. It has to be some sort of source sharing license. Probably best you contact the author SYSTEM just to clarify.

I got a reply. :) Free translation of the important part:

Quote:
The source code is completely free*. I didn't even try to put any license because it's useless bureaucracy in my opinion. Of course, I'm talking only for myself and the source code available (http://code.google.com/p/bonecode-editbone/), i.e. Jedi Project, Virtual Treeview, Unicode SynEdit, SynWeb, glyFX Icons are a different matter on which I don't comment.


* As in "free speech". Finnish has separate words for the two meanings of "free". :P

I also suggested the WTFPL license to the author.

I never remember that license. Thanks SYSTEM for reminding me and for contacting the author too.

I like those tabbed "search" boxes at the bottom. I could REALLY use that with what I'm working on right now.

Thanks for doing that.

I understand developers not wanting to deal with license goofiness, but here in the States, if you don't attach a license to something that doesn't mean it's Public Domain. In fact, my understanding is that the courts would rule it your property and apply copyright law. Adding SOME kind of license -- especially WTFPL -- would say "this belongs to nobody / is community property."

The suggestion didn't interest him. :|

You're quite right about that; would this have been published over there, it would have been fully copyrighted, no matter what the author's intent was. As it stands, I consider it under a license analogous to the CC Attribution... (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/)

Wow! That is rapid application development. ;)

Features missing (IMHO):
- URL detection/activation (preferably with double click or CTRL+click to avoid collision with text selecting);
- 'Toggle Case' should cycle through UPPER/lower/Sentence/And Title (currently only does UPPER/lower and deselects afterward);
- 'File Types' list (code highlighters) should be user editable, allowing for a subset to be displayed;
- The toolbar should also be made user configurable (currently only function sets can be hidden/shown);
- Search and Replace should be better integrated, giving both the docking/floating capability and regular expression options;
- Click (anywhere) and type should be made optional.
