 NAME
      Jed - programmers editor

 SYNOPSIS
      jed --version
      jed-script --version
      xjed --version

      jed [--secure] [--batch|--script|--help] [options] file ...
      jed-script [--secure] script file [script options] ...
      xjed [--secure] [X options] [--batch|--script|--help] [options] file
      ...

 DESCRIPTION
      Jed - programmers editor Features: Color syntax highlighting.
      Emulation of Emacs, EDT, Wordstar, and Brief editors. Extensible in a
      language resembling C. Completely customizable.  Editing TeX files
      with AUC-TeX style editing (BiBTeX support too).  Folding support, and
      much more...  For complete documentation, see GNU info files, this
      manual only provides brief tutorial.

 OPTIONS
    major options
      --version
           prints the version and compiletime variables.
      --help
           prints usage information.
      --secure
           runs Jed in secure mode, e.g. you can't run any external commands
           with system() or run_shell_cmd().
      --batch
           run Jed in batch mode.  This is a non-interactive mode.
      --script
           this is a mode like --batch but jed does not eval the startup
           files. It behaves like slsh. You must give the file that should
           be evaluated as second argument. It's the same as calling
           jed-script.

    minor options
      -n
           do not load .jedrc file.
      -a 'file'
           load file as user configuration file instead of .jedrc.
      + 'n'
           goto line n in buffer (notice that in order to this option to
           take effect, if must appear before the file name in the command
           line, like 'jed +3 file')
      -g 'n'
           goto line n in buffer (notice that in order to this option to

 CONFIGURATION
           Emulating Other Editors
      JED's ability to create new functions using the S-Lang programming
      language as well as allowing the user to choose key bindings, makes
      the emulation of other editors possible. Currently, JED provides
      reasonable emulation of the Emacs, EDT, and Wordstar editors.
           Emacs Emulation
      Emacs Emulation is provided by the S-Lang code in emacs.sl. The basic
      functionality of Emacs is emulated; most Emacs users should have no
      problem with JED.  To enable Emacs emulation in JED, make sure that
      the line:
           () = evalfile ("emacs");
      is in your jed.rc (.jedrc) startup file.  JED is distributed with this
      line already present in the default jed.rc file.
           EDT Emulation
      For EDT emulation, edt.sl must be loaded.  This is accomplished by
      ensuring that the line:

           () = evalfile ("edt");
      is in present in the jed.rc (.jedrc) Startup File.
           Wordstar Emulation
      wordstar.sl contains the S-Lang code for JED's Wordstar emulation.
      Adding the line
           () = evalfile ("wordstar");
      to your jed.rc (.jedrc) startup file will enable JED's Wordstar
      emulation.

 RUN TIME
           Status line and Windows
      JED supports multiple windows.  Each window may contain the same
      buffer or different buffers.  A status line is displayed immediately
      below each window.  The status line contains information such as the
      JED version number, the buffer name, mode, etc.  Please beware of the
      following indicators: **
           buffer has been modified since last save.
      %%
           buffer is read only.
      m
           Mark set indicator.  This means a region is being defined.
      d
           File changed on disk indicator.  This indicates that the file
           associated with the buffer is newer than the buffer itself.
      s
           spot pushed indicator.
      +
           Undo is enabled for the buffer.
      [Narrow]
           Buffer is narrowed to a region of LINES.
      [Macro]
           A macro is being defined.
           Mini-Buffer.
      The Mini-Buffer consists of a single line located at the bottom of the
      screen. Much of the dialog between the user and JED takes place in
      this buffer.  For example, when you search for a string, JED will
      prompt you for the string in the Mini-Buffer.  The Mini-Buffer also
      provides a direct link to the S-Lang interpreter.  To access the
      interpreter, press Ctrl-X Esc and the S-Lang> prompt will appear in
      the Mini-Buffer.  Enter any valid S-Lang expression for evaluation by
      the interpreter.  It is possible to recall data previously entered
      into the Mini-Buffer by using the up and down arrow keys.  This makes
      it possible to use and edit previous expressions in a convenient and
      efficient manner.
           Basic Editing
      Editing with JED is pretty easy - most keys simply insert themselves.
      Movement around the buffer is usually done using the arrow keys or
      page up and If edt.sl is loaded, the keypads on VTxxx terminals
      function as well.  Here, only the highlights are touched upon

      (cut/paste operations are not considered `highlights').  In the
      following, any character prefixed by the ^ character denotes a Control
      character. On keyboards without an explicit Escape key, Ctrl-[ will
      most likely generate and Escape character.  A prefix argument to a
      command may be generated by first hitting the Esc key, then entering
      the number followed by pressing the desired key.  Normally, the prefix
      argument is used simply for repetition.  For example, to move to the
      right 40 characters, one would press Esc 4 0 followed immediately by
      the right arrow key.  This illustrates the use of the repeat argument
      for repetition.  However, the prefix argument may be used in other
      ways as well.  For example, to begin defining a region, one would
      press the Ctrl-@ key.  This sets the mark and begins highlighting.
      Pressing the Ctrl-@ key with a prefix argument will abort the act of
      defining the region and to pop the mark.
