Power Edit is a very powerful text editor. It is a far more functional replacement for Notepad and Wordpad, and an excellent tool for creating and editing Web pages. With Power Edit you can simultaneously edit many files of any size, with lines of any length. You can quickly navigate between files with the simple tabbed interface, and can split each file window to see two views of the same file. In Windows NT, 2000 or XP, the number of simultaneous open files is virtually unlimited; in Windows 95, 98 and ME it is limited by system resources.
Power Edit contains all the usual features expected of text editors and several that are unique. The search and replace function is especially powerful, including regular expression handling as well as soundex and approximate searches, which are found in few if any other editors. In addition, the program includes many text manipulation functions which are difficult to find elsewhere, such as removal of leading spaces, position-based text deletion, deletion of blank lines and extraction of e-mail addresses and Internet URLs.
