This text editor runs on Linux and handles multilingual files with ease. It was originally written for
AmigaDOS and was inspired by TurboText editor.
- three user interfaces: control keystrokes, command line, and menus; keystrokes and menus are completely configurable;
- full support for UTF-8 files, including multiple-column characters;
- the number of documents and clips, the dimensions of the display, and the file/line lengths are limited only by the integer size of the machine;
- simple scripting language where scripts can be generated via an idiotproof record/play method;
- unlimited undo/redo capability (can be disabled with a command);
- automatic preferences system based on the extension of the file name being edited;
- a file requester with completion features for easy file retrieval;
- extended regular expression search and replace a la emacs and vi;
- editing of binary files;
- SyntaxHighlighting based on JOE and using the same definition format.
- Good integration with shell; suspend with Ctrl-Z, pipe selected block through external command with Alt-T
