purpose of that switch is to open and display the file in raw format. If
I understood correctly, that's precisely what Axel wanted.
And as I explained in some earlier mails, NP++ and MS Notepad, use a
Unicode input control. NoteTab, however, uses an ANSI input control.
The advantage of a Unicode input control is that it can correctly
display all UTF-8 and Unicode-16 characters. NoteTab can also open UTF-8
and Unicode-16 files, but will only render all characters correctly if
they fit within a code page -- this is the case with the vast majority
of such documents. However, NoteTab is not suited for those few
documents that have characters spanning over more than one code page.
The advantage of NoteTab's ANSI input control is that text takes up half
as much memory space as required by Unicode editors. The other advantage
is that many intensive text-processing tasks are much faster in NoteTab
than in a Unicode editor.
What does this mean? Well, for the vast majority of users (those who do
not need to edit special Unicode files), NoteTab ensure they have more
free memory available for other programs -- even when editing a large
number of big files. And they get things done faster in NoteTab thanks
to its highly optimized and fast code.
