Since I discovered gnupg.vim I've really started using gpg encryption on daily bases. This addon takes care of decryption when you open the file (asking for your keys pass phrase) and re-encrypts with modifications when the file is saved. Is there a text editor on windows (I'm using notepad++ right now) which have similar functionality?

and why do you stop using vim? i mean, there are binaries of 'gpg' ready for windows, there is 'vim' ready for windows .. what stops you?

why link to code.google.com when Windows gVim is available from vim.org's download page? (tho the answer might well be "64-bit", i'm not sure.) –  quack quixote May 11 '10 at 12:40
@quack: because bram publishes up-to-date binaries (current most patch level) at that place... AND the 64bit version as well. –  akira May 11 '10 at 12:45
Actually I think gVim feels a bit out of place on a Windows. While I love vim and use it all the time for everything in console mode I prefer texteditors as UltraEdit and Notepad++ on Windows. Now I'm just waiting for the Emacs:ians to reply that Emacs are also on Win and have scripts with the same functionality :D I already now there is ;) –  egolost May 14 '10 at 8:57
and (as crazy the emacsians are :)) right they are. why does vim feels unnatural on windows? –  akira May 14 '10 at 9:17
