Editors' Review

+

Although average users probably won't feel the need to switch to this free text-editing program, folks who regularly work with code may want to keep it around. Win32Pad features most of the basic editing tools found in similar programs, such as Word Wrap, Find, Replace, Cut, and Paste.

The program's main difference from simple editors such as WordPad is that it can open alternate types of documents for editing, including HTML, Visual Basic, JSP, PHP, XML, and CSS. In our tests with multiple types of documents, the program worked find, making it a worthy and no-cost addition to the toolboxes of Web developers.

"A valuable alternative to Notepad"

February 01, 2014  |  By Taras_Bulba

 |  Version: Win32Pad 1.5.10.4

Pros

The one feature that makes it an essential replacement for Notepad if you are working with code is the status bar with the line and column numbers. Also if you want to troubleshoot a Perl script, for instance, the text layout is correctly displayed while the XP Notepad will eliminate spaces between characters and lines making the code incomprehensible. Other useful features for coders are auto-indenting, line numbers, and the ability to read/write Unix and Mac text files. One cool feature provided by Richedit 3.0 is the incorporation of hyper-links in text which can be used to open the default browser. Some of the Richedit based word processors cannot do this.

Cons

There are non considering it is not supposed to be a fully featured programmers editor. Tabbed documents might be a valuable improvement.

Summary

There are dozens of Notepad alternatives fighting for supremacy and some of them contain a wealth of advanced features for programmers not available in Win32Pad. However the Win32Pad executable is only 54 kb in size and it opens very fast. This is the ideal NotePad replacement for advanced computer hobbyists because it enables the user to work efficiently with code without having lots of confusing menus and options. Highly recommended.
