The software is very slim and achieves negligible start times on modern systems. It offers unlimited cancellation of editing steps , search and replace and a print function, recognizes the character encoding of texts automatically, supports drag and drop and can display line numbering.
Leafpad is programmed in C by Tarot Osuji and has a graphical user interface based on GTK + 2. It is distributed as free software under the terms of version 2 of the GNU General Public License (GPL) .
Leafpad is the standard text editor of the LXDE desktop environment .
In 2004, Erik Harrison Mousepad , Xfce's default editor , split off to add support for printing. In the meantime, Mousepad has been completely rewritten by Nick Schermer (versions> 0.3) and, like Leafpad, has a print function. In version 11.10 (from October 2011) of Xubuntu, Mousepad was replaced by Leafpad, but it has returned to version 14.04 (April 2014).
