xint Review

Fernando Ortega
A feature-packed alternative to Windows notepad
A review of xint by Fernando Ortega

Xint is a cool little freeware utility that makes the lives of developers and normal users alike easier. When I tested xint, I quickly realized one of the coolest features, the code highlighting under (Format > Highlighting). The highlighting feature supports several scripting languages and the most popular would probably be PHP, HTML, C and XML for me, of course, any developer who's familiar with a language will find each option equally useful.

Xint, like the program it's designed to replace (namely Windows Notepad) also features Search and Replace. It can also insert HEX colour codes for those coding HTML.

Overall, it's small and not at all complicated software. 10x better than notepad, so there's no reason why you shouldn't install it and associate text files with it.

xint features and highlights:
  • Drag and Drop
  • Code completion
  • Evaluate expressions
  • Opens up to 10MB files
  • Uses fairy low memory/resources
  • Has "most recent documents"
  • Encrypt/Decrypt sensitive files with Twofish %u2013 a military strength 160 bit algorithm
  • Prints header and footers
  • User-defined snippets via textfile
  • Fast find & replace which uses Boyer Moore Algorithm
  • Find in files
  • Go To Line
  • Go To End Of File
  • View Clipboard
  • Access Character Map
  • Insert commom delimiters with a hotkey: commas, brackets, etc.
  • Insert hexadecimal formatted color
  • Preview in default browser
  • Activate selected URL or filepath to open in default application
  • Stores user and form settings in an .ini file automatically
  • Extra formatting menu in system menu
  • File properties
