Scintilla description
Scintilla is a free source code editing component. Scintilla comes with complete source code and a license that permits use in any free project or commercial product.

As well as features found in standard text editing components, Scintilla includes features especially useful when editing and debugging source code. These include support for syntax styling, error indicators, code completion and call tips.

The selection margin can contain markers like those used in debuggers to indicate breakpoints and the current line. Styling choices are more open than with many editors, allowing the use of proportional fonts, bold and italics, multiple foreground and background colours and multiple fonts.

The SinkWorld project investigates possible future directions for Scintilla to make it more flexible, robust, perform better and run on the .NET and Java virtual machines.

Development of Scintilla started as an effort to improve the text editor in PythonWin. After being frustrated by problems in the Richedit control used by PythonWin, it looked like the best way forward was to write a new edit control.

The biggest problem with Richedit and other similar controls is that they treat styling changes as important persistent changes to the document so they are saved into the undo stack and set the document's dirty flag. For source code, styling should not be persisted as it can be mechanically recreated.

Scintilla and SciTE are currently available for Intel Win32 and Linux compatible operating systems with GTK+.. . www.scintilla.org is the home of the Scintilla editing component and SciTE text editor application.
