Hi Helan Jak,
 
Notepad is one of the widely used tools in Windows based systems and the main use of it is to view and edit text files.
 
You can use notepad for coding purposes. It can be used with a lot of programming languages as the characters used in this codes are pure text. The only difference will be how you will save the file after editing.
 
For example, in Java, we can write a java code and after writing the complete code, we need to save it as a .java extension file. The same goes with python(.py), HTML(.html), C++(.cpp), JSP(.jsp), Unix Script(.sh), Visual Basic(.vb, .vba) etc. There are a lot of file extensions and based on the file extension you give, the system treats it as a different file.
 
The main disadvantage of using Notepad for coding is that it is only designed for pure text content. It doesn’t offer any particular feature for a particular Programming Language. That is the reason why most of the coding people use a lot of third party tools/editors which are build specifically for a particular programming language. Eclipse, Netbeans, Pyscripter, Borland C++,DreamWeaver etc are some of them.
 
The best alternative that can be used for coding instead of notepad is Notepad++. Its a free tool and offers support for a lot of file formats(including the above mentioned files). It will be easy to analyse the code as well as debug/edit them. Here is the link to it.
 
 
Happy coding 🙂
 
Hope it helps.

If you are a beginner and want to start coding with Notepad, it would be best to use Notepad++ instead of using the traditional Microsoft Notepad. Though you can use Notepad when coding, it doesn’t have the capacity to identify errors in your code unlike when using Notepad++. Microsoft Notepad and Notepad++ are both text editors and are excellent in editing and viewing text files.

But Notepad++ offers a better edge because it is not only a plain text editor but it can also be used for coding with programming languages such as C, C#, C++, COBOL, Fortran, HTML, Java, JavaScript, JSON, JSP, Pascal, PHP, PostScript, PowerShell, Python, Ruby, SQL, Visual Basic, XML, TCL, TeX, and others.

The best thing about Notepad++ when coding is that, when you write your code, it highlights every tag you used like in an HTML document. You can have a better view of the coding if one tag is missing a closing tag. It also features a predictive text input or the auto-completion feature. A pop-up appears as you enter the tag suggesting different options.

To try it, download Notepad++ Source Code Editor.
