    text editor notepad replacement

    status: freeware

    screenshot: ConText Very handy programmers' editor (and even a great replacement for the built-in Windows Notepad): syntax highlighting for many file formats (HTML, PHP, C++, Fortran, Java, Perl, Python and much more - 15 languages altogether), project management, macros, code templates, help invokation for the currently used language (ofcourse ConText itself does not contains these help files), capturing console output. The program can be also set up to use 'parsing rules' to process the compiler output - thus helps to find the position of the bugs! Small but great features follow: the program recognizes file changes (modification, deletion), can handle unlimited number of files together (and a file can heave even 4096 characters in a single line), supports CR+LF / LF / CR text formats, support blocks selection, finds matching brackets with a hotkey, etc.! As you can see, it's a very promising text-editor which is under continuous development! Code browser, file comparing features are also planned, and I hope, there'll be a lot more ;)

    visual file compare tool

    status: freeware (has shareware pro version)

    screenshot: ExamDiff A great visual file-compare tool which detects differences between two text files and displays them using different colors. You can toggle between files or display them together, or open any of the files with the configurable texteditor, and in the options screen you can define the differences to ignore (leading/trailing/all white spaces or change in amount of white spaces, case sensitivity) and the way to display or not to display them (colors, text editor, detection of file changes while comparing them). Though the task sounds easy, having this tool can save you a lot of time when comparing files - and far better than using a command-line tool! But you don't have to miss that functionality, it's already built in! ExamDiff can save a Unix Diff-compatible output file ;)

    free ms office msword suite spreadsheet text editor html editor presentation ppt

    status: freeware (GNU Lesser GPL)

    screenshot: A great multiplatform (Windows, Linux, etc.) office software package with professional text editor, spreadsheet, drawing, html-editor, presentation applications! It has the best, near perfect Microsoft Office file format-compatibility that's possible for a non-Microsoft application - both for loading or saving your documents. OpenOffice also introduces it's own, XML-based file-formats - it means, that your documents are stored in the simplest and easiest standardized format, which can also be readable by any other XML-capable application! OpenOffice has a very wide range of features while it takes much less space than the Microsoft products do (can be downloaded in a 50MB zip file). The developer community at are working hard to create the best desktop office application, and anyone can support it! There are new builds released continuously, by the time of writing this the newest build is 641d, and the next one is going to be the final 1.0 version. A real must-to-have stuff!
