Dear PN Team -

Thank you for a wonderful tool.

Are there any plans for a Java extension to Programmers Notepad, like PyPN?

For the moment I use Project Tools and Global Tools to integrate my Java programs into Programmers Notepad (I send the selected text to Java using Standard Input, and I capture the output, replacing the original selection).

But this method results in frequent crashes of PN.

I am not very good with Python, and know nothing about C (or what language PN is programmed in). A java extension would mean a way for me to contribute useful scripts (spell checking, regex search & replace in folders, replacement expressions etc.).

Thanks again for the tool.

I’m not personally planning on making a Java extension, but there is no reason why someone else can’t – that’s why all the extensions interfaces are public and documented. You might look at using SWIG to generate Java interfaces:
