WinPTE is a fully customizable programmer's editor with integrated Microsoft VBA and Perl scripting. WinPTE core is designed to facilitate implementation of end-user features via scripting. It is the scripts that provide the final editor functionality. This philosophy was chosen to ensure that the editor core is language agnostic allowing us or an interested end user to augment its functionality without the need to wait for a new version of the executable.
Some unique features:
Flex Insert Mode, better than tabs for column based text layout without the imbedding tabs in the file.
Power Block Mode, lets you apply editing operations to any number of lines in a file while editing only a single line. All changes are immediately visible and completely undoable. You simply have to try see it in action to fully understand its power and reduction of manual editing done by most programmers.
Auto Format on move, copy, paste of code. The code is properly indented at its destination without having to select or hit any keys.
Move single lines or line blocks up/down in the file using the Alt+Up/Down keys, more intuitive than cut/paste because you see the result of the action right away and it only takes a single key. As always the code will be re-indented to reflect its new location.
Drag & Drop that is geared towards programmers allows you to replace a word by dropping a selection on it.
Statement completion removes the need to type in standard language constructs, why type what you don't have to? text editor, source editor shareware listed in text editor, source editor section.
