A review of PSPad Editor by Tina de Pierre

PSPad is a free and portable text editor which supports syntax highlighting for many language including PHP, SQL, ASP and Python, among a long list of others. It is mainly a freeware replace of the Windows notepad and much, much more.

Comparible to programs like Notepad , PSPad is really great in that it also includes a hex editor and a DIFF engine. While being designed primarily for programmers and those with high technical knowledge, it could also probably be used as a simple text editor with a bunch of useful extras. PSPad is also a superb HTML editor which includes TidyHML and TopStyle Lite.

Additional features of PSPad include file browsing, custom short cuts and even an lightweight built-in FTP client for remote file editing.
