Question:

Which text editors (free or commercial) handle character encoding and Windows/Unix line breaks properly?


Solution:1

Here's a list of Text editors and their newline support.

Also see this list and look at the Newline conversion field


Solution:2

I should think the vast majority do. Certainly Vim and Emacs will.


Solution:3

Notepad++ is free and handles this dandily. Not to mention it's quite handy for plenty of other text-editing tasks.


Solution:4

textpad does a good job. i like version 4.7 it is much nicer than 5.*


Solution:5

Notepad++ is really good.


Solution:6

Scintilla and Scite are my favorites but there are lots of good ones that will do what you want


Solution:7

I can't think of any that does not. I do not count notepad.exe.


Solution:8

Eclipse also does a great job between reformatting between windows and Unix. Additionally as mentioned before, Emacs is great too.


Solution:9

I'm having no problems whatsoever with formatting, special characters and umlauts by using IDM UltraEdit.


Solution:10

jEdit does it.


Solution:11

On Windows you can use PowerShell ISE for editing files with Unix line breaks.

The only side-effect I observed is that you have to set "Save as type" to "All files" on "Save As..." command to avoid appending .ps1 file extension.
