What is PocketNotepad

PocketNotepad is a pocket version of Windows Notepad. PocketNotepad runs on CE devices.

The concept of PocketNotepad is "To provide the same feature as Desktop Notepad does" or "Nothing added to the original Notepad". :-)
That is, no toolbars, rebar bands, etc...

On the other hand, it does not provide several functions as it is becoming to its name. The eliminated functions are, for example, printing, drag&drop, help files and so on.

Thus, in the case you do not use Notepad on your desktop mainly, it is not considered as appropriate to use PocketNotepad heavily on your CE device. It is thought as appropriate to use PocketNotepad for viewing text files, for taking short memo, for a buffer in cutting and pasting.

While, in the case you are a heavy user of desktop Notepad, PocketNotepad would be the most preferable editor on your CE device.
It's small, light, cute and simple. PocketNotepad does not require MFC dll. It's really small!
