"Pad is a file editor for Unix. It is built on the ncurses library to run on a console or in an xterm window. Though pad is relativly small in size and modest in resource consumption it is pretty complete.

YES: large files, long lines, binary clean, multiple files, mouse support, cut/paste, search/replace, undo, autoindent, key macro, bracket matching, ...

No: scripting language, regular expression searching, overtype mode, syntax highlighting, text formatting ... "

Inspired by the old Logitech point editor Provided in C source form. Requires ncurses and gpm (for mouse support.)
