Simple GTK+ based text editor

'Leafpad' is a simple GTK+ based text editor. The user interface is similar to "notepad", and it aims to be lighter than GEdit and KWrite and to be as useful as them. It has no toolbar, which maximizes the text viewing area; a single document interface (SDI), to set out windows to view one at a time; and character coding autodetection, to open a file quickly without multi-codeset problems. 'Leafpad' is best used with a lightweight window manager such as xfce, rox, or Icewm.
