./editors/nano, Small and friendly text editor (a free replacement for Pico)

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.4, Package name: nano-4.4, Maintainer: wiedi

GNU `nano' is a small and friendly text editor. Besides basic text
editing, `nano' offers many extra features like an interactive search
and replace, goto line number, auto-indentation, feature toggles,
internationalization support, and filename tab completion.

The original goal for `nano' was a complete bug-for-bug compatible
emulation of Pico, but consistency is now a slightly higher priority.

Nano does not have the restrictive license problems of Pico.

nano: update to 4.4

2019.08.25 - GNU nano 4.4 "Hagelslag"
• 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.

nano: update to 4.3

2019.06.18 - GNU nano 4.3 "Musa Kart"
• The ability to read from and write to a FIFO has been regained.
• Startup time is reduced by fully parsing a syntax only when needed.
• Asking for help (^G) when using --operatingdir does not crash.
• The reading of a huge or slow file can be stopped with ^C.
• Cut, zap, and copy operations are undone separately when intermixed.
• M-D reports the correct number of lines (zero for an empty buffer).

editors/*: let pkglint fix indentation and variable alignment

pkglint -Wall -F -r editors

Manually fixed the changes in editors/nedit since the "fixed" indentation
was wrong.

nano: update to 4.2

2019.04.24 - GNU nano 4.2 "Tax the rich, pay the teachers"
• The integrated spell checker does not crash when 'spell' is missing.
• Option --breaklonglines works also when --ignorercfiles is used.
• Automatic hard-wrapping is more persistent in pushing words to the
  same overflow line.

nano: update to 4.1

2019.04.15 - GNU nano 4.1 "Qué corchos será eso?"
• By default, a newline character is again automatically added at the
  end of a buffer, to produce valid POSIX text files by default, but
  also to get back the easy adding of text at the bottom.
• The now unneeded option --finalnewline (-f) has been removed.
• Syntax files are read in alphabetical order when globbing, so that
  the precedence of syntaxes becomes predictable.
• In the C syntax, preprocessor directives are highlighted differently.
• M-S now toggles soft wrapping, and M-N toggles line numbers.
• The jumpy-scrolling toggle has been removed.
• The legacy keystrokes ^W^Y and ^W^V are recognized again.
• Executing an external command is disallowed when in view mode.
• Problems with resizing during external or speller commands were fixed.

nano: update to 4.0

2019.03.24 - GNU nano 4.0 "Thy Rope of Sands"
	• An overlong line is no longer automatically hard-wrapped.
	• Smooth scrolling (one line at a time) has become the default.
	• A newline character is no longer automatically added at end of buffer.
	• The line below the title bar is by default part of the editing space.
	• Option --breaklonglines (-b) turns automatic hard-wrapping back on.
	• Option --jumpyscrolling (-j) gives the chunky, half-screen scrolling.
	• Option --finalnewline (-f) brings back the automatic newline at EOF.
	• Option --emptyline (-e) leaves the line below the title bar unused.
	• <Alt+Up> and <Alt+Down> now do a linewise scroll instead of a \ 
	• Any number of justifications can be undone (like all other operations).
	• When marked text is justified, it becomes a single, separate paragraph.
	• Option --guidestripe=<number> draws a vertical bar at the given column.
	• Option --fill=<number> no longer turns on automatic hard-wrapping.
	• When a line continues offscreen, it now ends with a highlighted \ 
	• The halfs of a split two-column character are shown as "[" and \ 
	• A line now scrolls horizontally one column earlier.
	• The bindable functions 'cutwordleft' and 'cutwordright' were renamed
	  to 'chopwordleft' and 'chopwordright' as they don't use the cutbuffer.
	• The paragraph-jumping functions were moved from Search to Go-to-Line.
	• Option --rebinddelete is able to compensate for more misbindings.
	• Options --morespace and --smooth are obsolete and thus ignored.
	• The --disable-wrapping-as-root configure option was removed.

Update to 3.2

Upstream changes:
2018 November 11

GNU nano 3.2 "Het kromme hout" changes the default binding
for the linter to M-B so that the spell checker (^T) can
always be used, and changes (when linting) the text in the
title bar and the color of the status bar to make linting
mode more obvious.  It also adds a bindable 'zap' function
for deleting a line or marked region without changing the
cutbuffer, adds --zap to bind the <Del> and <Backspace>
keys to the zap function when something is marked, and
hard-binds <Alt+Del> to 'zap'.  Furthermore, it shows the
cursor also in the help viewer (when --showcursor is used),
renames the bindable functions 'prevhistory' to 'older' and
'nexthistory' to 'newer' (update your nanorcs when needed),
reads the nanorc files also in restricted mode to allow
customization by the user (if this should not be allowed,
use --ignorercfiles in addition to --restricted), allows
in view mode to open also other files (if this should not
be allowed, use --restricted in addition to --view), makes
resizes respect a relative --fill again, no longer binds
F13...F15 by default, properly re-highlights a misspelled
word after invoking help in the internal spell checker,
and does not skip Unicode characters in string binds.
