Leafpad is a simple GTK+ text editor that emphasizes simplicity. As development focuses on keeping weight down to a minimum, only the most essential features are implemented in the editor. Leafpad is simple to use, is easily compiled, requires few libraries, and starts up quickly.
Currently Leafpad has the following features:
Codeset option (Some OpenI18N registered)
Auto codeset detection (UTF-8 and some codesets)
Display line numbers
Drag and Drop
