I have used Notepad++ and enjoy its syntax hilighting and code-folding
features.

However, I keep coming back to Notetab (notetab.com) because the
interactivity with other programs is built into Notetab itself, not
provided by a scripting utility like AutoIt.  I have developed a
library of text-processing functions and interactivity with Stata
based on work started by Ross Odell.

The library can be found at:
http://www3.ns.sympatico.ca/d.elliott/Stata.clb .  This works with
Notetab versions up to 4.95.  I also have a version that works with
Notetab 5+ that I can make available upon request.

For working with do files it has run, do, do-selected and do-to-end
functionality.  It will do a lookup of Stata commands directly from
the editor, and if Stata isn't open, it will start Stata.  You can't
get that functionality from existing AutoIt scripts.  I have included
an experimental execute-mata command that will paste a block of mata
code into Stata and run it.

A list of the text functions and links with Stata is included below:
