Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

MadEdit

#1 Post by rexx » Tue Oct 17, 2006 4:28 am

MadEdit is an Open-Source & Cross-Platform Text/Hex Editor written in C++ and wxWidgets.
MadEdit can edit files in Text/Column/Hex modes, and supports many useful functions, e.g. SyntaxHighlightings, WordWrap, Encodings.
Freeware, unicode supported, and can quickly change encoding, just like in a browser!

Good support for multibyte chars in hex mode.

Posted to the database. Thanks!

I am always looking out for Unicode text editors that supports CJK encoding, and MadEdit seems to have a lot of CJK-related functions eg. convert to simplified/traditional Chinese.

Another MadEdit fork:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/madedit-mod/
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-too ... -Mod.shtml

Looks like the developer is claiming bug fixes, Win10 compatibility, and drag-and-drop and word highlighting.

Github page at https://github.com/LiMinggang/madedit-mod provides a fork enhancements feature list, full changelog, known issues and issue reports.

Impressive functionality built into a sub-10MB natively portable executable with no framework dependencies (with less than 30MB memory footprint with no files loaded). Also, I haven't tested this, but it surely sound impressive:

In HexMode, MadEdit can open large files which size is up to 32GB (INT_MAX*16).


Only URL activation is missing from my trinity of must have lightweight text editor features -- others being case changing and date insertion.

Some UI quirks and usability could be fixed (chiefly, some menus need rearranging into sub-menus) and a better default icon (the 90's called and want the present one back... :cowboy:), but overall a rare addition to my recommended list.

Tried the mod; gets sluggish fast with files above a few megabytes (at least when viewed as text not hex).
I do NOT have other accounts.

A lot of them make that claim. There are only a few freeware editors that can effectively load large files.

Tell me about it. As soon as I wrote that, I recalled your excellent editor tests; I was just too lazy to check MadEdit out -- it's Summer and it gets hot in here... :yum:

Most of the tested editors that boast about handling large text files didn't live up to their claims. Most freeware editors able to handle large files didn't showcase that capability and just included it on their feature list. Large file processing looks good on a feature list, and since most users are unlikely to verify that, it's fairly safe for developers to make those kind of statements.
