Notepad++ is a free “text and source code editor” for Windows Operating System. Its use is governed by The “GNU” General Public License (GNU GPL or GPL), which guarantees end users the freedom to run, study, share and modify the software. It is a Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size.
Notepad++ has features for syntax highlighting, code folding and limited auto completion for programming, scripting, and markup languages, but not intelligent code completion or syntax checking. As such it may properly highlight code written in a supported schema but whether the syntax is internally sound or compilable cannot be verified.
