Not encyclopedic[edit]

Smacks of a vanity page. There's a good chance that this isn't encyclopædic. Twin Bird 20:43, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Why does it "smack" of vanity? There was a link to this page, so i created it (i have no connection to the project). Also, maybes you should add some constructive criticism rather than your own personal opinion.

Introduction Paragraph[edit]

"SciTE (cross-platform) and Notepad++ (Windows) are standalone editors based on Scintilla." Is this sentence necessary in the introduction paragraph? If not, I think its removal would make the text flow better.--Eleman (talk) 08:36, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

The flow needs work, but it's mainly for a few applications that the component is notable. Tedickey (talk) 09:59, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Notepad++ regular expression support[edit]

The section Features says:

«Furthermore, the regular expression search implementation is rudimentary, and the numerous shortcomings have been known for years and affect the performance of dependent editor projects (e.g. Notepad++)[1][2]»

Notepad++ release 6 introduced PCRE (Perl Compatible Regular Expressions) support.

I'm not sure whether this means that Notepad++ has swapped Scintilla's standard regular expression support for PCRE, has expanded it, supports both, or there's changes to Scintilla's regular expression support (as well).
