<font color='#0000FF'><span style='font-size:13pt;line-height:100%'>nano - The GNU Nano Text Editor, v 1.1.12</span>


Description

Nano is the editor formerly known as TIP (TIP Isn't Pico).

Some advantages of using Nano instead of Pico are a goto-line # command, interactive search-and-replace and autoindent support.

Nano is also 1/2-1/8 the size of the Pico binary, making it ideal for rescue disks. It is also a stand-alone distribution, not a part of a larger package.

GNU nano features:
  • Autoconf support.
  • Truly free license (GNU GPL).
  • Goto-line# command w/o flag.
  • Case sensitive search function.
  • Interactive search and replace.
  • 2/3 - 1/8 size of Pico binary.
  • Slang and ncurses support.
  • Autoindent abillity.
  • Displayed tab width option.
  • Regular expression search and replace.
  • Toggles for cmdline flags via Meta keys.
  • Tab completion when reading/writing files.

Licence: gpl-2
Webpage: <a href="http://www.nano-editor.org/" target="_blank">http://www.nano-editor.org/</a>


To install:
     pkg -i http://freesco.tecknojunky.com/030/nano-1.1.12_tj

The install script will ask you if you wish to make nano be called when typing edit.

For it's small size, I think nano is a good compromise between edit and vi (size/features).

Enjoy.</font>

<font color='#0000FF'>Also released for 0.2.7.

To install:

installpkg http:freesco.tecknojunky.com/030/nano-1.1.12_tj

No, it's not the wrong URL, the same tarball is use for both 0.2.7 and 0.3.0, only the install script is different.

These URL's are temporary.  Obviously, since I have one package for both version, specifying a version in the URL is irrelevant (and even confusing).  

So when (if) people will report that the installation and program works as advertised, i'll publish it to FREESCOsoft and than modify my own URL's to reflect this change :;):

nadegda:  The install script you probably have, I don't have it anymore :D .  I have already completly rewritten (maybe even 2 or 3 times over) the install script.

If you want to have fun, take a look at the install script for the 0.2.7 version.  I have hacked some code from the pkg script of 0.3.0 so that the same tarball will both work on 0.2.7 and 0.3.0.  So the job of making both packages is greatly similar.

I'm sure you'll see that it could be pushed further so that both version could have almost the same code regardless if it's for 0.2.7 or 0.3.0.  That would ease the job of making packages  :music:</font>
