Looking For A Full Featured Windows Text Editor

When I started doing web design over 10 years ago I used Macs and loved BBEdit. About 7 years ago I switched over to Windows and have yet to find a comparable text editor. I have to use several different programs to achieve the same results and I still am missing a few features. I use Editplus which handles 90% of my needs, but is missing a batch search and replace on files option (it batches on open files but who wants to open thousands of files). I use HTML Kit to handle that.

One feature that BBEdit has that I really miss and haven't seen in any Windows Text Editors is the ability to copy or cut every line where a match is found (great for manipulating log files). So is there a Windows Text Editor out there that does everything I want? Syntax coloring for HTML and PERL, spell checker, normal and grep search and replace, batch search and replace on files, copy/cut entire lines with pattern x in them.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, Lts95!

I use notepad++ [notepad-plus.sourceforge.net] and I've been liking it so far! ;)

I use Notepad++, too.I like it because supports several programming languages, so you can do more on that....

I've been using Crimson Editor for several years now. I've tried jEdit and other similar editors, but CE seems to fit me. Despite my preference with CE the one thing that bugs me the most is that the programmer is no longer working on it.
