I am currently using Dev C++ program for the program I write in. I was wondering if there are any free download programs out there that are a text editor? I mean by giving it a black background, certain key words are highlighted to different colors? I know there is one like it for another program, Visual Studios I believe. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Which Dev are you using?

I believe I'm using v4.9 and I always give myself a--

>Black Background
>Green text
>Red paranthesis/brackets
>Yellow Hexadecimal/Octal

etc...

I think you just need to go to your environment options to make the edits.

Edit: Go to your Editor options and go to Syntax - you can make the changes there.

Oh wow, thanks so much!

One more question, does anyone know how to get Dev C++ to stop deleting the next character space when using space or typing something in? I want it to space over instead of delete and write over.

There is a toggle key on your keyboard labelled 0 INS. If you hit it once, your keyboard will behave as you are asking for, char will be inserted. Hit it twice and your keyboard overwrites next char again.
