    Notepad++ v5.1.2 released (includes spell checker)

    Notepad++ v5.1.2, the free source code editor and notepad replacement has been released.

    It mainly contains bug fixes, but for those that used the spell checker and have been stuck with version 5.0.3, that plugin has been updated to work with the new unicode version. The spell checker plugin is included in the installer along with some other plugins.

    Notepad (supplied with Windows) is a simple text editor. You can create or modify text files of most any type. It has many limitations compared to Notepad++ and other more advanced text editors. When you look at the features listed on the NOTEPAD++ site you'll find that Notepad has none of these. There are many advanced text editors around. Some are <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> and some are sahreware. IMO, if you haven't found a need to use Notepad you don't need to bother with an alternative. It is nice to know that you can get something more advanced if you ever need it.

    And just in case you'd enjoy a little more reading and might wonder about it, these two Wikipedia pages might prove helpful:

    Joe,
    Hello and thank you for your response. After looking at the program you are correct, for now this is way above my "PayGrade" I'm having enough questions just with my "registry exploits" ( for the time being!) Regards
