./editors/joe, Joes own editor

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.0, Package name: joe-4.0, Maintainer: adam

JOE is the professional freeware ASCII text screen editor for UNIX.
It makes full use of the power and versatility of UNIX, but lacks the steep
learning curve and basic nonsense you have to deal with in every other UNIX
editor. JOE has the feel of most IBM PC text editors: The key-sequences are
reminiscent of WordStar and Turbo-C. JOE is much more powerful than those
editors, however. JOE has all of the features a UNIX user should expect:
full use of termcap/terminfo, excellent screen update optimizations (JOE is
fully useable at 2400 baud), simple installation, and all of the
UNIX-integration features of VI.

Update to 4.0

Upstream changes:
JOE 4.0
JOE now has pop-up shell windows with full terminal emulation and shell commands
that can control the editor. Hit F1 - F4 to bring up a shell window.
See Pop-up shell feature for a full description.
The status command (^K SPACE) can now be customized using the same syntax
as the status bar. Look for smsg and zmsg in joerc to see how to do this.
parserr (the error parser) will parse only the highlighted block if it's set. \ 
Before it always parsed the entire buffer.
Now there is a per-buffer concept of current directory. This was added to
make the pop-up shell windows work better, but it's useful in general.
At file prompts you can begin a new anchored path without having to delete
the old one. It means that ~jhallen/foo//etc/passwd is translated to /etc/passwd.
Prompt windows are now highighted to indicate which parts of the path are
being dropped. There is a syntax file for this: filename.jsf
The error parser now ignores ANSI sequences (some versions of grep
color their results, now JOE can still parse it).
Temporary messages are now dismissed by keyboard input only. Before, they
could also be dismissed by shell input.
Tags search now supports multiple matches. ^K ; can be configured to
either provide a menu of the matches or to cycle through them.
Tags search will now match on the member name part of member functions
('fred' will match 'myclass::fred').
Tags search will prepend the path to the tags file file name in the tags
file. This is important when JOE finds the tags file via the TAGS
environment variable.
Remove ` as quote character from incremental search.
Clean up documentation, convert much of it to Markdown.

JOE 3.8
Search JOE image for :include files referenced by the joerc file.
Include ftyperc file in the JOE image.
Change default indent from 2 to 4. Add quick menu to change to common
indent values: ^T = (1, 2, 4, or 8). Switch to + and - for definitively
setting or clearing options so that 0 and 1 can be use for quick select.
Added option to suppress DEADJOE file
Jump to matching delimiter (Ctrl-G) has been improved. It can now use the
syntax files to parse the document in order to identify strings and
comments which should be skipped during the matching delimiter search.
(patch by Charles Tabony).
When 'notite' mode is enabled, JOE now emits linefeeds to preserve the
screen contents in the terminal emulator's scrollback buffer. This can be
suppressed with a new flag: nolinefeeds.
JOE now starts up quiet (prints no extra messages when starting).
Messages are collected in a startup log (view with ESC x showlog).
There is a new flag 'noexmsg' which, when set, makes JOE quiet when it shuts
down (suppresses "File not changed so no update needed" message).
Use 80th column if terminal has xn capability (patch by pts and Egmont
Support italic text (on some terminal emulators) with "\l" (patch by
Egmont Koblinger)
Support bracketed paste (patch by Egmont Koblinger)
Fix line number in syntax highlighter error output
Prevent infinite loops caused by buggy syntax definitions.
