The best free programme for this is "Notepad++". It makes it so much more comfortable.

I'm going to go ahead and point out that you will get different responses depending on who you ask. Google is the best impartial judge; just search for reviews: http://www.google.com/search?q=code+edi ... re+reviews

That said, I wouldn't recommend paying for text editor unless you have clearly established its superiority by trying a dozen other different editors (at which you will no longer need to ask for advice :)).

I, like JeRicHoOL, use Notepad++ for most things.

there is one called edit plus.

gives u line numbers, also once u edit the file, it makes a back up automatically of the old file so any thing goes wrong, u can just replace the old file.

and I will chime in here with editpadlite

it is free,
it will open as many and as big files as your computer has enough memory for.
it has a very good search and replace etc, etc.

vi editor is the best I know of and it's free... When I'm feeling really froggy, I use VIM instead :)

If you're looking for something basic that will suit most editing needs, Notepad++ is definitely one of the best out there which is free.

If you're looking for a fully featured IDE type environment which will take you to the development level, rather than the editing level, check out Aptana Studio.

Although not free, I personally use UEStudio/UltraEdit.

The same, VIM for me as well, and Notepad++ with the FTP plugin when I don't have Shell access to the server.
