Notepad++ Overview

Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad plus is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL, which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size.

By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad plus is trying to reduce the world’s carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener environment.
