PSPad is a comprehensive text and code editor that provides not only advanced text editing functions, but also many tools addressed to developers, regardless of the programming language they use.
The application has been specifically designed to serve a double purpose. It can easily replace the popular Wordpad and Notepad tools included in Windows and, in the same time, PSPad will prove its worth when dealing with complicated code syntax.
The ace up its sleeve is actually a mix between the excellent bundle of features and its quite easy to use and friendly interface. Since it was designed to help all types of users, PSPad comes with an impressive list of templates that includes PHP, Python, HTML, C++, Foxpro, XHTML and many others.
There are so many tools in there that some users may find PSPad a bit overwhelming at first glance, but it's just the way such an application is supposed to be in order to accommodate the needs of regular users and programmers alike.
Besides feature like syntax highlighting, macro recording or search and replace functions that are common to many similar apps, PSPad brings to the table much more. It comes with a full HEX editor, a FTP client so that you can edit files straight on the server, an internal web browser, a color translator and the code checking and formatting TiDy library.
All things considered, PSPad is definitely once of the top choices when it comes to code and text editing applications. It is designed for beginners as well as experienced programmer and comes with a great set of features to meet anyone's needs.
