Left es un editor de texto muy sencillo, en cuanto a su uso y entorno visual. Emplea características que lo diferencian de los demás, aunque obviamente necesita tomar algunas que ya hemos visto en otros editores por su naturaleza, posee funciones propias que nos hacen fijar la vista en este programa.
