JPad is a basic text editor that you can use to create simple documents. The most common use for JPad is to view or edit text files, but many users find this editor as a simple tool for creating Web pages.Because,normally the editor supports only very basic formatting, you cannot accidentally save special formatting in documents that need to remain pure text. This is especially useful when creating HTML documents for a Web page because special characters or other formatting may not appear in your published Web page or may even cause errors.You can save JPad files as a text, html, Java extension. This JPad conatins different menus to give more convenience to the user. The menus like File,Edit,Process,and Look& Feel. This JPad provides various graphical icons to represent the frequently used menu items. These formats provide you greater flexibility when working with documents that use different character sets.

INTRODUCTION: A text editor is a type of program used for editing plain text files.Text editors are often provided with operating systems or software development packages, and can be used to change configuration files and programming language source code. Some text editors are small and simple, while others offer a broad and complex range of functionality. For example, Unix and Unix-like operating systems have the vi editor (or a variant), but many also include the Emacs editor. Microsoft Windows systems come with the very simple Notepad, though many peopleespecially programmersprefer to use one of many other Windows text editors with more features. The editing process often begins with the author's idea for the work itself, continuing as a collaboration between the author and the editor as the work is created. As such, editing is a practice that includes creative skills, human relations, and a precise set of methods.Notepad is a common text-only (plain text) editor. The resulting filestypically saved with the .txt extensionhave no format tags or styles, making the program suitable for editing system files that are to be used in a DOS environment. In Jpad the file menu contains new, open, save and exit menu items. In Jpad contains a menu called Look & feel. It provides a facilitate to change the appearance of the window. The edit menu contains various menu items such as cut, copy, and paste.

To cut text so you can move it to another location, select the text, and then on the Edit menu click Cut. To copy text so you can paste it in another location, select the text, and then on the Edit menu click Copy. To paste text you have cut or copied, place the cursor where you want to paste the text, and then on the Edit menu click Paste.
