Take a Note, Write Some Code
Programmer’s Notepad is a programming editor that doubles as a notepad replacement. It’s small enough to be used effectively as a Notepad replacement and it’s nice to have the programming editor right at your fingertips. There are more highlighting options than you can shake a stick at. On the left side there’s a frame with a list of common functions that are ‘bundled’ so when you select one of them the appropriate characters show up in your editor and then you can fill in the customizable portion of the function. Of course, those functions change depending upon which programming language you select. It also recognizes the separate ‘chunks’ in your programs and it allows you to collapse or expand those so looking at all that code doesn’t scare you off.
I’m not much of a programmer, I do some stuff with html / css / xml occasionally. Like most out there, I copy, hack, and make it work for me if I can. Code doesn’t scare me but I’m not the type that will create something on his own. Programmers Notepad is really useful to users like me, who don’t really know what they are doing, and can use a nudge in the right direction once in a while. Programmer’s Notepad enables users like myself to do more with code than we otherwise could. If you’re starting to look at code and customize html, then Programmer’s Notepad is a good way to pull up the stuff you are looking at. And since you’re using it for that reason, you might as well replace Microsoft’s Notepad with it and switch your ‘file association’ for .txt to Programmer’s Notepad.
