Compare All 3 Versions



Notepad++ is a free (free as in “free speech”, but also as in “free beer”) source code editor and Notepad replacement, which supports several programming languages, running under the MS Windows environment.

This project, based on the Scintilla edit component (a very powerful editor component), written in C++ with pure win32 api and STL (that ensures the higher execution speed and smaller size of the program), is under the GPL Licence.

This project is mature. However, as you can see it’s a one-man-project, there are still some bugs and missing features. If you have any question or suggestion about this project, please post them on the forums. As well, if you have any feature requests, you can always make the demand, but there’s no guarantee that I’ll implement it.

You’re encouraged to translate Notepad++ (if it is not present in the Download Section) and/or to translate the Notepad++ official site into your native language.

I hope you enjoy Notepad++ as much as I enjoy coding it.

Here are the features of Notepad++ :

Syntax Highlighting and Syntax Folding
User Defined Syntax Highlighting
Regular Expression Search/Replace supported
Full Drag ‘N’ Drop supported
Dynamic position of Views
File Status Auto-detection
Zoom in and zoom out
Multi-Language environment supported
Brace and Indent guideline Highlighting
Macro recording and playback

    AutoIt v3 – scripting language for automating the Windows GUI and general scripting.

    AutoIt v3 is a freeware BASIC-like scripting language designed for automating the Windows GUI and general scripting. It uses a combination of simulated keystrokes, mouse movement and window/control manipulation in order to automate tasks in a way not possible or reliable with other languages (e.g. VBScript and SendKeys). AutoIt is also very small, self-contained and will run on all versions of Windows out-of-the-box with no annoying “runtimes” required!

    AutoIt was initially designed for PC “roll out” situations to reliably automate and configure thousands of PCs. Over time it has become a powerful language that supports complex expressions, user functions, loops and everything else that veteran scripters would expect.

    Features :

    • Easy to learn BASIC-like syntax
    • Simulate keystrokes and mouse movements
    • Manipulate windows and processes
    • Interact with all standard windows controls
    • Scripts can be compiled into standalone executables
    • Create Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs)
    • COM support
    • Regular expressions
    • Directly call external DLL and Windows API functions
    • Scriptable RunAs functions
    • Detailed helpfile and large community-based support forums
    • Compatible with Windows 95/98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/2003/Vista
    • Unicode support
    • Digitally signed for peace of mind
    • Works with Windows Vista’s User Account Control (UAC)

    AutoIt has been designed to be as small as possible and stand-alone with no external .dll files or registry entries required making it safe to use on Servers. Scripts can be compiled into stand-alone executables with Aut2Exe.

    Also supplied is a combined COM and DLL version of AutoIt called AutoItX that allows you to add the unique features of AutoIt to your own favourite scripting or programming languages!

    Best of all, AutoIt continues to be FREE – but if you want to support the time, money and effort spent on the project and web hosting then you may donate using the link to your left in the menu.

    Create GUIs

    AutoIt v3 will also allow you to create some complex Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) – just like those below!

    ImageX GUI (GImageX)

    For a graphical user interface for the ImageX tool see this page.
