Based on the powerful Scintilla editing component, Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses a pure Win32 API and STL for faster execution and smaller program size. By optimizing as many subroutines as possible without sacrificing user-friendliness, Notepad++ is trying to reduce the world’s carbon dioxide emissions. By using less CPU resources, the PC can reduce power consumption and reduce power consumption, making the environment more environmentally friendly.

Notepad++ is better than Sublime Text?

Both applications are powerful text editors, but the main difference is that Notepad++ is open source and free. sublime text offers a trial version, but it costs $99 for a license. Another important difference is that Notepad++ is only available on Windows, while Sublime Text is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It’s worth noting that Sublime Text offers a trial version that you can use for free, but it will keep asking you to purchase a license.
