LopeEdit Lite 5.6.1
A powerful yet easy-to-use programmer's editor and Notepad replacement

LopeEdit Lite is a very capable Notepad replacement which is aimed squarely at programmers, yet could be very useful for other knowledgeable PC users, too.

The program has a built-in file browser, for instance, so it's easy to navigate to the text documents you need, and drag and drop them into LopeEdit. Although if you're creating files from scratch then the tabbed interface ensures that's very easy, too.

A powerful Find and Replace tool, with regular expression support, can send the results of your search to a separate pane. So if you run a particular search, you don't have to browse through the entire document to see every hit, because they're all displayed in a single window: very useful.

There are all kinds of other extras. You can bookmark a line in a document for easy recall later, for instance. A Favourites system makes it quicker to reload frequently-edited files. Detailed statistics are available on every document in a couple of clicks (Words, lines, empty lines, characters (including/ excluding lines), creation time, last access time and more). And a File > Send To option allows you to quickly send the current document via email to whoever you like.

And then of course there are all the developer features.

Like customisable syntax highlighting for C/C++, Java, JavaScript, Visual Basic, VBScript, XML, HTML, ASP, JSP, SQL, Cobol, C#, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), Pascal, Perl, PHP.

LopeEdit can open files directly from web or FTP sites.

And there's also a built-in ASCII table; support for various new line types; and a host of useful encoding and editing options.

Please note, if you do need more then there's always LopeEdit Pro. This extends the Lite version with a built-in hex editor, an FTP browser, multiple clipboards, code template support, file and folder compare, intellisense for all the supported programming languages, and more.

LopeEdit Pro is yours for around $32 and you can find out more at the LopeEdit site.

Version 5.6.0 changes include:
•Improved the Find Results Panel
•Added a new command in Input/Output Panel to create a new document containing the text displayed in the panel.
•New option in exteral tools to create a new document containing the output of the external program.
•The "Save As..." button only is enabled if some file is modified.
•When you cannot to save a protected file because UAC (User Access Control) is activated on Windows Vista or later, then a message box is displayed to elevate with Administrator privileges to save the file. So you do not need to run LopeEdit as Administrator from the beginning to edit and save protected files.
•When you pass files in the arguments of LopeEdit, now you also may pass the line number and the character position where the cursor will be positioned when the file is open. The format is "file:l[,c]", where l is the line number and c (optional) is the character position into the line.
•It is possible to disable each external tool individually.
•LopeEdit is registered into "Default Programs" on Windows 7 and Windows 8. So you may easily associate LopeEdit with specific file types. You may run Default Programs from the Control Panel on Windows 7/8.

Verdict:

An excellent programmer's text editor which also works well as a regular Notepad replacement

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
