I’ve decided to have a look at what the open-source/shareware market has to offer these days when it comes to text editors that can handle regular expressions.
I have been using EditPad Lite to test and run my regular expressions, and in the past 10 or so years I have not been able to find any tool that even comes close to being as useful. This time around I tested two other options that have been given good reviews: Notepad++ and PSPad.
Here are my findings from looking into EditPad Lite, Notepad++, and PSPad.
Also if you find this review interesting, I did a review back in 2011 of the top online regular expression testing tools at that time. Feel free to have a look, and let me know what you think!
