all over I only use windows for Notepad++ its a great alternative to vim:-) I would like to see if it's possible to port this notepad++ to linux x86 and x86_64 arch. I love notepad++ really much..if I can help to port it I would do it.
Unfortunately, the fact that Notepad++ use Win32 native API makes impossible to port to another platform.
However, I heard that Notepad++ can be launched with WINE under Linux, but I don't know if you should recompile Notepad++ under WINE.
mh don't want to use wine or such win32 emu tool. then I stick at vim with syntax highlight :-) or Emacs should not that worth. But for windows notepad++ still the .*JABA DABA DU"
Why don't you use SciTE on Linux? It is based on the same component as Notepad++ (Scintilla) and has a great syntax highlighting, code folding and everything...
Kate is also light and great. It comes with KDE
