NotePad++: Text Editor which shows \r\n (via: Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/01/26

I hadn’t monitored Notepad++ in a very long time, so I was glad that User Thomas Owens mentioned that it can show you the CR and LF codes:

With Notepad++, you can show end-of-line characters. It shows CR and LF, instead of “\r” and “\n”, but it gets the point across. […]

To use Notepad++ for this,

  1. open the View menu, open the Show Symbols slide out, and
  2. select either “Show all characters” or “Show end-of-line characters”.

I needed this because many development environments get confused when you have text files using a mix of line-break kinds (in my case LF, CR and CRLF).

Mac OS X GeekTool: like Windows BgInfo on steroids.

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/01/12

A long time fan of BgInfo on Windows, I was looking for a Mac OS X replacement.

And I found one: GeekTool is on steroids compared to BgInfo (:

Much more than I needed (plenty of add-on scripts too), but more than enough to get some simple text displayed.
