Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++
is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a
higher execution speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many
routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad++
is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less
CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption,
resulting in a greener environment.
