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

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.9.3, Package name: nano-4.9.3, 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 4.8

2020.02.07 - GNU nano 4.8 "Jaška"
• When something is pasted into nano, auto-indentation is suppressed,
  and the paste can be undone as a whole with a single M-U.
• When a lock file is encountered during startup, pressing ^C/Cancel
  quits nano.  (Pressing 'No' just skips the file and continues.)
• Shift+Meta+letter key combos can be bound with 'bind Sh-M-letter'.
  Making any such binding dismisses the default behavior of ignoring
  Shift for all Meta+letter keystrokes.
• The configuration option --with-slang (to be avoided when possible)
  can now be used only together with --enable-tiny.
• A custom nanorc file can be specified on the command line, with
  -f filename or --rcfile=filename.

2019.12.23 - GNU nano 4.7 "Havikskruid"
• A <Tab> will indent a marked region only when mark and cursor are
  on different lines.
• Two indentations (any mix of tabs and spaces) are considered the
  same when they look the same (that is: indent to the same level).
• When using --breaklonglines or ^J, a line will never be broken in
  its leading whitespace or quoting.
• The keywords in nanorc files must be in lowercase.

2019.11.29 - GNU nano 4.6 "And don't you eat that yellow snow"
• The 'formatter' command has returned, bound by default to M-F.
  It allows running a syntax-specific command on the contents of
  the buffer.
• ^T will try to run 'hunspell' before 'spell', because it checks
  spellling for the locale's language and understands UTF-8.
• Multiple errors or warnings on startup will no longer slow nano
  down but will be indicated on the status bar with trailing dots.

2019.10.04 - GNU nano 4.5 "Košice"
• The new 'tabgives' command allows you to specify per syntax what
  the <Tab> key should produce: some spaces, a hard TAB, ...
• The output of --help is properly aligned again for all languages.
• <Tab> will indent a marked region also when M-} has been rebound.

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.

Log message:
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.
