Personaly, I'm thrilled about Notepad 2. It's a small textediter like Notepad, but with MUCH more functionality built in without weighing it down much. It's a great IDE for a number of languages (just got to run it through a compiler/assembler), and it has a bunch of other cool functions too!
Check it out:
I agree, I find it an incredibly valuable tool, since I do all my HTML coding in it.
I've been using Notepad++ on my USB drive. It's good also:
Notepadd++ write it's setting to Application folder, but not notepad2.
It does not means that is completly unsable on a USB. I asy best thing to do is to contact his author and request a portable version using a xml or ini file...
hundred of portable applications:
I also agree, but does it not already work on a flash drive? Can you install it without the Reg entries?
I love this app. All settings are stored to the registry, but the default settings are usually fine with me.
It's opensource, so somebody (I don't know C/C++) could modify it not to use the Registry. Either that, or use a batch file to simulate a "portable registry."
SciTE saves its settings to the application directory. You can also open any of the property files to change any settings you want.
I like using PSPad (www.pspad.com) as well as Notepad2.
The source code for Notepad2 is available at http://flos-freeware.ch/zip/np2src.zip; maybe someone could look into it.
