As replacement to Notepad there is also UltraEdit .
It is shareware.
Even better is pcGRASP (this one is great for working with C, C++, Ada GNU
compilers under Win95). Get it at . It is a
kind of freeware. It made my work with Cygnus products much more

Good luck!

P.S. May be webmasters on can make some links to them, so
that more people can use them.
