SciTE is an extendable development environment for editing and processing source code and markup language files.

Extremely customizable, SciTE can be tailored to particular projects and work flows. Your preferred tools can be easily integrated into SciTE. The environment can be extended using the Lua scripting language.

Asian language files in multi-byte encodings like Shift JIS are handled natively with no conversions which avoids possible corruption.

For documentation and display, files may be exported with highlighting to various formats including LaTeX and PDF.

What's New in Version 4.0.2

This release fixes a bug that occurs on macOS High Sierra 10.13.

The bug caused drawing failures when a match was found while searching in a large file.

Might be worth $41.99 if it features worked...

I have used SciTe for years on Linux and Windows and it’s my text editor of choice. This Mac port is a crap. Save/Load Session does not even work. Other features as others have noted also do not work. Please don’t waste your $41.99. Simply not worth it.
