IM looking for something just like notepad (can open/paste the there thing you copied not like wordpad). I once knew the hack on it but can't recall how it when. It would hack notepad so you could open BIG files (more then a 1mb).
So if you know the hack or a program like it that will open bigger files Please post a url or regedit.

Well, I can get the hex or text editers. If you know the hack that's what IM really looking for, I know there's one.

Ok, I know what you're talking about, but I have no clue where to get it, or the time to redo it myself. What you are indicating is a reverse engineering tutorial done several years back when win95 was new. It was done using WinDasm32 and notepad. I don't know where to find it but there is a little background info on it.

Hello joker12578

Click here for a really great replacement for notepad. (http://www.editpadpro.com/editpadclassic.html)

Edit Pad is also shareware, the right price. The author would like you to send him a postcard for it.

It should do what you requested and a whole lot more. Check it out. http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/biggrin.gif

I just wanted to say that I LOVE editpad, I replace notepad with EditPad on every box that I come in contact with.

It is much more powerful with a lot more features than notepad, it allows you to customize the look a lot more too and doesn't consume much more resources.

It also allows you to have multiple files open at once.

5 stars for EditPad.
