Hope you don't mind me stealing a few words :)

Hey Mouser,

Been busy and not much time to post, but anyways...

I ripped a few words from the text editor review here:

http://www.altools.net/Support/TranslatingALTools/FreeTextEditors/tabid/210/Default.aspx

In the mouse-over text link to the text editor review, and again here:

http://www.altools.net/Forums/tabid/86/forumid/7/postid/478/view/topic/Default.aspx

I just couldn't help it - I got a real kick out of that the first time I read it.  :D

I hope that's ok - credit is given.

Cheers,

Ryan

Once again, the brilliance that is editpad pro is overlooked. Shameful. ;)

That's a review of free text editors. EPPro is not free. Although EditPad Lite isn't too bad in itself.

i was going to mention editpad pro but i didn't want to deprive allen of the fun of it.
i've promised to give editpad pro a good long look when the next version comes out to see if it can dethrone ultraedit.

But commercial alternatives were mentioned.  :)

--Mouser, as of the latest beta, most of the toolbar glyphs are in place. Progress :)

EditPlus has an unlimited trial period, so that's enough to sneak it in under the wire. We also host an INI syntax highlighting file EditPlus for translators for some programs (ALZip, ALSee, ALFTP).

UltraEdit was only mentioned because it won the review.

The other "mentionables" were from ASP members and just informational in case anyone wanted to look beyond the very limited list that I put up there.

I didn't see much point in putting more than a very few. I would like to have included EditPad. I know Jan and he's a nice guy. I just had limited space though. That and you can't undo past save points.

Personally, I prefer commercial software for myself most of the time. I'd rather just pay for it and get it done with. It's easier & in the long run it's often cheaper. Sometimes free is good too though. For recommendations though, I try to give good free ones first, then give commercial recommendations.

Cheers!
