small, friendly text editor inspired by Pico

GNU nano is an easy-to-use text editor originally designed as a replacement for Pico, the ncurses-based editor from the non-free mailer package Pine (itself now available under the Apache License as Alpine).

However, GNU nano also implements many features missing in pico, including:

 - undo/redo
 - line numbering
 - syntax coloring
 - soft-wrapping of overlong lines
 - selecting text by holding Shift
 - interactive search and replace (with regular expression support)
 - a go-to line (and column) command
 - support for multiple file buffers
 - auto-indentation
 - tab completion of filenames and search terms
 - toggling features while running
 - and full internationalization support

Tags: Implemented in: C, User Interface: Text-based Interactive, Role: Program, Scope: scope::utility, suite::gnu, Interface Toolkit: Ncurses TUI, Purpose: Editing, Works with: Text
