WISH Supernotepad text and HTML editor

WISH Supernotepad 2011 is a fairly simple, fairly powerful text and HTML editor with a stripped-down, "Notepad-like" menu interface and mini-toolbar. It is designed to be totally accessible to the ordinary computer user, while incorporating some features not often found in simple programs written for ordinary users. WISH Supernotepad 2011 requires Tcl and Tk 8.5 or greater.

In addition to standard text and HTML editing functions (including file insertion, quick list and table creation in HTML, and more), WISH Supernotepad 2011 can perform the following functions, among others:

  • Custom tag creation and insertion for HTML or other text (NEW in WISH Supernotepad 2011)
  • Single-click HTML display in browser of your choice
  • Versatile search and replace operations with optional wild-card substitution or regular expressions
  • "Supercut, Supercopy, Superpaste": selection, retention, and insertion of multiple text blocks
  • Quick search through large numbers of previously invoked filenames and previously selected text blocks
  • Choice of simple or "expert" (regular-expression) search methods; individual or global search and replace of single or multiple expressions
  • Single-click insertion of special characters in text and HTML
  • Color selection and insertion of hexadecimal color codes into text or HTML
  • Tcl/Tk program code creation (with automatic indentation), editing, and instant test-running
  • Unlimited undo and redo
  • Printing with word wrap and specified margin width (on Unix-type systems only)
  • Conversion of plain text to simple HTML
  • Line number identification and word count
  • Display of "Save?" indicator on title bar when unsaved text exists

WISH Supernotepad 2011 is available in a "tar.gz" package including the program, documentation, and a simple installation script for Linux/Unix operating systems, as well as a .PET package ready for single-click installation on Puppy Linux. Except for printing, it's intended to work on Windows too.
