General Information
-------------------
Welcome to gnotepad+.  gnotepad+ is an easy-to-use, yet fairly feature-rich,
simple text editor for Unix based systems running X11 and using GTK (the Gimp
ToolKit).  gnotepad+ was designed to have as little bloat as possible, while
still providing many of the common features found in a modern GUI-based text
editor.  It is still fairly light-weight, especially for the features it
offers, and aims to remain that way.

The "+" in gnotepad+ is there to differentiate it from other GTK-based text
editors which may call themselves "gnotepad".  Additionally, gnotepad+ is not
intended to be fancy, so it leverages its text editing capabilities on the GTK
Text Widget.  Hence, if you are looking for a programmers's editor, look for
another text editor or help improve the GTK Text Widget.


Installation
------------
See the file 'INSTALL' for instructions.

  If you do not have GTK, you can get it at http://www.gtk.org.

- Fairly clean code that's actually commented/documented!
