IF you like BBedit on Mac... especially running GREP patterns UltrEdit is a nice editor, http://www.idmcomp.com/index.html I'm a Mac guy so when I found this program for windows, it made my life easier when I was in a situation of working on PC's, its not as good as BBedit, but what is? -----Original Message----- From: Lauri Vain [mailto:optima at hot.ee] Sent: Friday, February 02, 2001 12:03 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] Killing Note Pad! > EditPlus (http://www.editplus.com) is my recommendation. supafast, > full-featured.

Some time back I was looking for an alternative for Notepad and I chose Editplus based on somebody's recommendation. I personally use it to edit everything from simple HTML and plain text to SQL, PHP and so on. I love the color coding, regular expressions, replacing text (exact matching or regular expressions) and others. I'm not affilated with them in any way, just love it. The registration fee used to be $10 (I think) but recently it went up to $30 (again, if I'm not mistaken). There is a free trial version avaiable on www.editplus.com. I have recommended it to several friends and all of them have ditched the programs they used and took this as an replacement. Another thing I like - it fires up almost as instantly as Notepad. I highly recommend it, download a trial.
