Annoyed by the limitations of Notepad. This started out as an introduction for a friend of mine to MFC programming and has ballooned into a fully featured text editor.

Shareware LogoShareware Notice

As of v2.0, Notpad is being distributed as shareware, that is you are free to use Notpad for up to a month. If after this period you continue to use Notpad, you must make a registration payment to the author.


You can register directly with the author via normal post. Note that I cannot directly accept credit cards. If you wish to use a credit card, then you must use the Regnet option above. The cost via snail mail is $10.00. Remember to include your email address in your letter so that I can quickly confirm receipt of your registration. To register directly with me, you can send a cheque (made payable to PJ Naughter), cash or international money order to:

PJ Naughter, 
Co. Wexford, 


The registration fee is very small and its a great incentive for me to keep improving Notpad. Once I have received the registration you will be given a key which will unlock Notpad and remove that annoying nag screen.
