    Small Edit - Notepad Replacement

    I just finished a program I call Small Edit. It is a really small Text Editor. It is better than Notepad and has some nice features for HTML editing. If you have Windows 95 or higher could you download it and give it a try so I can see how it runs on other people's systems. I also want to know what you guy's think of it.

    Thanks.

    You did a fantastic job. In fact I think this is one of the best things I've ever seen anybody make as an amatuer (assuming you are an amatuer). Did you use MFC or Win32 to make this? How long did it take you to make this? All I have to say is this is going to be my new text editor. Thanks a lot.

    Hey, this is great, too bad I didn't have it earlier

    Works well under win98, I'll post if I find anything wrong with it (not likely, looks good)

    Thanks for your wonderful remarks. I programmed in C and used the Windows API. Glad to hear that is working on everyone's machines. Also, if you have any recommendations for the Insert->HTML menu, I would like to hear what they are.

    THAT IS SO GOOD SEAN!!!!!!!

    WOW!! i love it! and just as tech, it's my new text editor! i hated notepad in win98 becuase ctrl+s didn't work...that ........ed me off so bad but your editor is great. Great Job!

    the HTML thing, you can add a BODY tag with all the usuall things such as BGCOLOR, ALINK, VLINK, LINK etc. (you could just change that in the FRAME thing.

    a font tag with the FACE and SIZE

    a LIST tag tith differene kinds of lists(bullet, ordered etc)

    i can't think of anything else right now.. and in the insert, when i select QUICK LINK, it also adds a stylesheet link.
    Code:
    QUICK LINK::
    <a href="http://" target="" name="" onMouseOver="window.status=''; return true;" onMouseOut="window.status=''; return true;"><link rel="stylesheet" href="filename.css" type="text/css"></a>

    is that supposed to do that, or it was just a type-o?
    oh i'm sorry! i didn;t realize my fist was rushing to meet ur face!

    Cammander: I believe it is a mistake. I will check it out when I get a chance.

    The actual programming of the editor took me about 2.5 weeks. I spent another week in the beginning researching what other text editors were like and writing some documentation on how I wanted it to work.

    Thanks

    What does the new version add/fix/change; I haven't tried it out yet.

    I have some ideas for you for html add-ons but they would actually probably be more like javascript

    one could be a download counter script. i'm not sure how difficult this would be, but i know i would love to be able to have it

    different javascript menus.

    adding pictures (aka img src...)

    font changing, allignment, and other effects for text

    setting a .jpg as your background

    can't wait to see more...

    It's brilliant. That's as straight as I can be.
    Perhaps in a few months Windows would come standard with small edit.
