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:

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 :)

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

ConText, supports a variety of programming languages.
Also, don't forget to associate whatever program you use with .txt files.

Was this forum for the text editor you use to create C++ programs?? If so, I don't use notepad, I use Visual C++'s IDE.

ConTEXT is a good one, free, supports many programming languages and very easy to use.

CodeWright is even better, but it is not free and I thought it was quite expensive. I use it at work and it really works great.

I used to use PFE, Programmers File Editor, also a good one.

TEXTPAD ALL THE WAY!

by the way that extra stuff that fordy couldn't remember includes the expansibility to code for any language you wish. It already has defintion and syntax files for almost every language out there (literally hundreds) and from what i read it's quite easy to tweak and make your own (i modified the java and html .syn files to makea javascript defintion file)

My text editor requires special hardware to work; this specific piece of hardware is, of course, a pencil sharpener.

A good C/C++ compiler or ANY other compiler should come with an in-built text editor, so it doesn't really matter which one you use...

My emacs editor uses default GNU bracking and spacing style. It matters. I can also execute various langauges within the editor, send/recieve email and go online (not that I've tried these features, but they are there). There are many rpm packages that enhance emacs.

When I'm not using the IDE editor of whatever product I'm using, or if I need to do anything clever, I use UltraEdit.

I don't agree. In my opinion a good code editor should first be easily used with a lot of compilers. At home I'm using ConTEXT which I have linked with several compilers for C, C++, Pascal, Java and assemblers. Second it should offer good facilities for developing code, things like keyword-highlighting and code-browsing are very usefull. An advantage of this is that you need to master just one code editor and don't need to mind very much about the compiler (from an editing point of view).

I understand your opinion.. but a text editor should be what it sounds like.. TEXT editor.. not HEX editor.. Hex editors & that other stuff could be a completely different application... If you need a text editor, get a TEXT editor, not a HEX/TEXT editor :P

Ugh...what are you talking about...so I should flush my favorite text editor because it gives me the option to view in hex.....

No, but a text editor should be what it sounds like.. text editor.. it may contain several other plug-ins or whatever they are, but it's main job is a TEXT editor.
