Notepad++ My Favourite Text Editor

Previously I use EditPlus to code my WordPress themes. The coding process was a lot easier than using Notepad because I can do the undo process up to multiple levels, it supports syntax highlighting and also it will automatically backup the file whenever you click the Save button.


However after I found out about Notepad++, I fall in love with it. Notepad++ is a freeware text editor which I can say, it is the best Notepad replacement that supports several programming languages and also a good competitor to EditPlus. Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size.

Another great thing about Notepad++ is it supports plugins. Kerasiotis Vasileios from Jeez Tech has listed down several Notepad++ plugins that are great and necessary for Notepad++. Some of the plugins are quite interesting and I wish I can try them all and write a review here.

But if you ask me which one is better between Notepad++ and EditPlus, I personally will choose Notepad++. If you are a WordPress theme coder, I recommend you to use Notepad++ for your coding jobs. It is easier to code the theme using Notepad++ than using Dreamweaver or Notepad. Go to the download page and get your copy for free.

It is great Tool, if we need to past many rows in Excel , it come in many row, but if we want to put many rows data in a cell of excel it not comes, so first we paste it into notepad and copy it from notepad and then paste it to the cell in excel. Finally it comes there. So Notepad is great and always great
