       Jed - programmers editor


       Color  syntax  highlighting.   Emulation  of  Emacs, EDT, Wordstar, and
       Brief editors.  Extensible in(1,8) a language resembling C. Completely  cus-
       tomizable.   Editing  TeX files with AUC-TeX style editing (BiBTeX sup-
       port too).  Folding support, and much more...

       For complete documentation, see GNU info(1,5,n) files, this manual  only  pro-
       vides brief tutorial.

              run Jed in(1,8) batch mode.  This is a non-interactive mode.
              do not load(7,n) .jedrc file.
       -g 'n'
              goto line n in(1,8) buffer
       -l 'file(1,n)'
              load(7,n) file(1,n) as S-Lang code.
       -f 'function'
              execute S-Lang function named(5,8) function
       -s 'string(3,n)'
              search forward for string(3,n)
              split(1,n) window
       -i 'file(1,n)'
              insert file(1,n) into current buffer.

              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(1,8)  The  basic
       functionality  of  Emacs  is  emulated; most Emacs users(1,5) should have no
       problem with JED.  To enable Emacs emulation in(1,8) JED, make sure that the

              () = evalfile ("emacs");

       is  in(1,8) your jed.rc (.jedrc) startup file.  JED is distributed with this
       line already present in(1,8) the default jed.rc file.

              EDT Emulation

       For EDT emulation, must be  loaded.   This  is  accomplished  by
       ensuring that the line:

              () = evalfile ("edt");

       is in(1,8) present in(1,8) the jed.rc (.jedrc) Startup File.

              Wordstar Emulation  contains  the  S-Lang  code  for JED's Wordstar emulation.
       Adding the line

              () = evalfile ("wordstar");

       to your jed.rc (.jedrc) startup file(1,n) will enable JED's Wordstar  emula-

              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 ver-
       sion(1,3,5) number, the buffer name, mode, etc.  Please beware of the  follow-
       ing indicators:

              buffer has been modified since last save.
              buffer is read(2,n,1 builtins) only.
              Mark set(7,n,1 builtins) indicator.  This means a region is being defined.
              File  changed  on  disk indicator.  This indicates that the file(1,n)
              associated with the buffer is newer than the buffer itself.
              spot pushed indicator.
              Undo is enabled for the buffer.
              Buffer is narrowed to a region of LINES.
              A macro is being defined.


       The Mini-Buffer consists of a single line located at the bottom of  the
       screen. Much of the dialog(1,3,n) between the user and JED takes place in(1,8) this
       buffer.  For example, when you search for a string(3,n), JED will prompt you
       for the string(3,n) in(1,8) the Mini-Buffer.

       The  Mini-Buffer  also provides a direct link(1,2) to the S-Langinterpreter.
       To access(2,5) the interpreter, press Ctrl-X Esc and the S-Lang> prompt will
       appear in(1,8) the Mini-Buffer.  Enter any valid S-Lang expression for eval-
       uation 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(1,8) 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 page down keys.  If is loaded, the keypads on VTxxx  ter-
       minals  function  as  well.  Here, only the highlights are touched upon
       (cut/paste operations are not considered `highlights').  In the follow-
       ing,  any character prefixed by the ^ character denotes a Control char-
       acter. 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 exam-
       ple, to move(3x,7,3x curs_move) to the right 40 characters, one would press Esc 4  0  fol-
       lowed  immediately by the right arrow key.  This illustrates the use of
       the repeat argument for repetition.  However, the prefix  argument  may
       be  used  in(1,8)  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(3,7) the act of defining the region and to pop the mark.
