What is gnotepad+?
Welcome to gnotepad+. gnotepad+ is an easy-to-use, yet fairly feature-rich,
simple HTML and text editor for Unix based systems running X11 and using
(the Gimp ToolKit) and/or GNOME. gnotepad+
was designed to have as little bloat as possible, while still providing
many of the common features found in a modern GUI-based text editor.
It is still fairly light-weight, especially for the features it offers,
and aims to remain that way.
The "+" in gnotepad+ is there to differentiate it from other GTK-based
text editors which may call themselves "gnotepad". Additionally,
gnotepad+ is not intended to be fancy, so it leverages its text editing
capabilities on the GTK
Text Widget. Hence, if you are looking for a programmers's editor,
look for another text editor or help improve the GTK Text Widget.
gnotepad+ is free
software (also called open source)
developed and distributed under the (GNU)
Multiple windows, multiple documents

Lots of other miscellaneous goodies
Fairly clean code that's actually commented/documented!
To use gnotepad+, you need the following:
A Unix-based operating system with X-Windows.
The latest version of GTK correctly installed (both the stable and development
versions work). CVS versions are not supported. If you do not have GTK,
you can get it at www.gtk.org.
GNOME is optional.
If you want to compile gnotepad+ from source, you will need an ANSI C
compiler (e.g., gcc will work).
gnotepad+ is written and maintained by
people have generously contributed to gnotepad+ development with code
patches, bug fixes, bug reports, and testing. They are listed
throughout the ChangeLog file found in the source archive.
