Simple text editor with Lua enhancements
Current Version: CodeMAX 1.1.6 Download
What is CodeMAX?
CodeMAX is a simple and fast text editor with the possibility to add custom features using the script language Lua. By creating plugins with Lua you can customize CodeMAX on your own. For exsample it is possible to build a complete IDE for different programming languages like C/C++, PHP, Pascal or Basic.
CodeMAX supports syntax highlighting for many programing languages like HTML, Java, PHP, C/C++/C#, Pascal, different Basic dialects, Assember, SQL, Lua, XML and much more. About 300 highlighters are included. And if you do not find the highlighter you need you can create a new one.
The goal of CodeMAX: A fast and easy to use editor without frills. If you want frills, OK, go on and write a plugin!
