nano - small, friendly text editor inspired by Pico

GNU nano is an easy-to-use text editor originally designed as a replacement for Pico, the ncurses-based editor from the non-free mailer package Pine (itself now available under the Apache License as Alpine).
However, GNU nano also implements many features missing in pico, including:
  • undo/redo
  • line numbering
  • syntax coloring
  • soft-wrapping of overlong lines
  • selecting text by holding Shift
  • interactive search and replace (with regular expression support)
  • a go-to line (and column) command
  • support for multiple file buffers
  • auto-indentation
  • tab completion of filenames and search terms
  • toggling features while running
  • and full internationalization support

  • Update to version 4.4:
    • At startup, the cursor can be put on the first or last occurrence of a string by preceding the filename with +/string or +?string.
    • When automatic hard-wrapping occurs (--breaklonglines), any leading quoting characters will be automatically copied to the new line.
    • M-6 works again also when the cursor is at end of buffer.
