L3afpad - GTK+ based simple text editor


L3afpad is a simple GTK+ text editor that emphasizes simplicity. As development
focuses on keeping weight down to a minimum, only the most essential features
are implemented in the editor. L3afpad is simple to use, is easily compiled,
requires few libraries, and starts up quickly.

This program is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2,
see the file 'COPYING' for more information.
