kPad - Lightweight Text Editor

kPad

Brief Overview

kPad, a lightweight text editor loosely based on the MTPad sample from the Microsoft SDK (12/1/99) allows you to read and manipulate RTF and TXT files using a RichEdit control. However, kPad's main focus is as an example of what you can do using the WTL.

Features

  • Sheets control
  • Find and Replace custom dialogues
  • Small size 104 kilobytes

Implementation

  • This project was created with the help ATL\WTL AppWizard as a "Multiple Threads SDI " application with a generic view window.
  • The class SheetsCtrl is view window for the MainFrame and a container for the SheetView child windows.
  • SheetView is a superclass of the RichEdit control
  • The small size of 105 kilobytes is achieved due to the WTL's non-usage of the CRT library (_ATL_MIN_CRT) and use the project options /OPT:REF, /OPT:ICF, /OPT:NOWIN98.

Environment

  • This application was created with VC 6.0. SP3, WTL and January MS SDK.
  • It has been tested only on W2k.

  • Due to internal controls and regulations, the amount of long term archival data is increasing every year. Since magnetic tape does not need to be periodically operated or connected to a power source, there will be no data loss because of performance degradation due to the drive actuator. Read this white paper to learn about a series of tests that determined magnetic tape is a reliable long-term storage solution for up to 30 years.
