    This was asked before.

    EditPad

    /edit, oh, and I never used your editor, and you don't have a poll!
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    EDXOR isn't really a C++ editor but I have had it for a long time so it is a favorite of mine. I just add .cpp to the end and it works nicely...EDXOR can be found at:

    Oh and I didn't post a poll because I didn't know the most popular editors :-)

    MS NOTEPAD, what are others for? A text editor (a simple) is to make write normal text.. programs don't make difference.. Notepad is all you need
    what does signature stand for?

    Notepad is a not very good....

    It can only load a file of a certain size and has no real fetures..

    Textpad has;
    • Hex viewer
    • It can handle huge files
    • Spell checker
    • Template library (for HTML,Java). And you can add more
    • Customisable commands (so you can have a Compile or even Build command)
    • A real fast way to search a folder of files for certain text. Great for .h file lookups
    • File Comparison
    • MDI
    • Text formatting (transpose, change case etc....)
    • Loads of stuff I cant remember
