man page of efte

efte: Text editor


efte - Text editor


efte [[options] files ...] vefte [[options] files ...] nefte [[options] files ...]
This manual page documents briefly the efte. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may be used by others), because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in html format; see below. efte is a powerful text editor which closely resembles Borlands programming editors for M$-DOS, but is far more flexible and configurable.
efte uses a command line syntax, which is a little bit different from most of Debian GNU/Linux apps. -h -? --help Help on command line options. -! Ignore any external configuration file and use internal configuration. -l<line>[,<column>] Go to line (and column) in next file on command line. -#<line>[<,column>] Same as -l. Do not use this option. -m[<mode>] Set mode for next files to <mode>. If just plain -m, then use default mode. -C[<.cnf>] Use specified configuration file (compiled). Plain -C does the same as -!. -D[<.dsk>] Load/save desktop from file <.dsk>. If no argument, disable desktop load/save. -H[<.his>] Load/save history from file <.his>. If no argument, disable history load/save. -T<tagfile> Load 'tagfile' at startup. -t<tag> Lookup tag 'tag' and display file containing it. -- The rest of the arguments are not options, but filenames. -+ The next argument is not an option even if starting with a '-'. Useful when loading files that begin with a -. -noxmb Do not use XMB functions in xefte - useful if you have incorrect locales and you want to use just english fonts. -font Select XWindow font to use with xefte. See VIOFONT also.


This is list of variable which might change behavior of some internals of efte. VIOFONT - select font used by xefte ISOCONSOLE - when set, vefte is usign ascii symbols to draw tables. This is useful when iso latin charset is used on console.
