nano is a small and friendly text editor. Besides basic text editing,
nano offers features like undo/redo, syntax coloring, interactive search-and-replace, auto-indentation, line numbers, word completion, file locking, backup files, and internationalization support.
The original goal for
nano was to be a complete bug-for-bug emulation of Pico. But currently the goal is to be as compatible as is reasonable while offering a superset of Pico’s functionality. See Pico Compatibility for more details on how
nano and Pico differ.
Starting with version 4.0,
nano no longer hard-wraps an overlong line by default. It further uses linewise scrolling by default, and by default includes the line below the title bar into the editing area. If you want the old, Pico behavior back, you can use the following options: –breaklonglines, –jumpyscrolling, and –emptyline (or -bje).
