any updates on this? :)

Well, I am working on the next version of Win32Pad. Adding lots of nice and exciting stuff. But the code is not quite stable and I still need to fix a few things.

Key requests for me are:
1. syntax highlighting
2. the ability to "title" the application window based upon which type of file is being edited (e.g., "C", "Perl", "Python", etc.)

OLE automation would be nice for any new features which you add.

Syntax highlighting is very important to me, and I feel that there are no small footprint editors which support it, I have taken very fondly to Win32Pad and find it a brilliant little editor but the Syntax coloring is missing (something like Vi would be brilliant but even regexp based colouring such as nano would make a huge difference.

One last request is that the paste from is cleaned up such that it doesn't take the font/formating with it, one of the only things I liked about notepad was that I could copy from it and paste it into another richtext based program and it would not take its font with it. (Hope you understand what I mean).

I love how you let us shmoes can have a say, and keep up the good work, win32pad is the only thing that keeps me sane as I am too busy to move over to linux yet.

I would like to be able to have the option of setting what my default save extention is. Currently it is in *.txt. I would like to have the ability to change that.

hmmm very lovely nice, small and clean programme-
But as I found another tool doing basically the same work and even better I want to share this knowledge with you:

as many users are missing some very basic features-
have a look at this almost similar (also in use of RichEd20.Dll) lovely tool at

:<img src="http://www.gena01.com/forum/Smileys/default/wink.gif" alt="Wink" border="0" />:  http://liquidninja.com/metapad/

Admit this one lacks the direct Line# view and is double the size of your editor (still only 93.5 K) BUT it has also basically double the functionality (lots of features requested by users of your program already available) and is available in 25 languages-

Anyhow hope that will motivate you to go and develop an even better tool at a smaller file size and at the same price-

or maybe go together and develop the best tool ever with half the workload  :)

Thanks!

Alexander Davidson has stated in his FAQ that he intends to release Metapad under the GNU GPL. If he does, then Gena01 is free to copy over any aspects that he desires.

Hi Genadi,

Can you give us a status update?
The last one was dated almost a year ago.

Still waiting for some nice updates....

Hi! Thanks for the outstanding program! I've been using it since Version 1.3.3 and I love it!

If I can add my wish for the next version, I'd really like to see a 'vi' mode. I do a lot of work on UNIX systems, and I often find myself typing vi commands in Win32pad by accident.

Once again, thanks and keep up the great work!

First of all i know about metapad, for a number of years now. Every now and then somebody comes and says that its better...  The way I see it, it's about choice. Win32Pad has features that metapad doesn't (some features i consider bloat) and vice versa.  

I am still working on Win32Pad, there are many updates planned. It  just might take some time.

Regarding the open source bit. If something is GPL i can't just go and use his code. He still has copyright over the code and there are other restrictions.

My interpretation of the GNU GPL is that you only have to credit the original author, with no other restrictions, as long as you release your application as freeware, and also include the original source (I think you only have to include the bits you copy or borrow, your own source is your own choice).

Um, it isnt a requirement for software released under the GNU GPL to be released for free.
A major requirement is that the human readable source code must accompany the binaries, or be otherwise available.

But as far as I know, Gena01 doesnt want to release win32pad under the GNU GPL, or any other Free Software/Open Source license. He just wants it to be free, as in zero price.

You have to license your own software under the GNU GPL, if that software uses (a substantial?) part of a work licensed under the GNU GPL.
