README


GNU nano - an enhanced clone of the Pico text editor.

Overview

The nano project was started because of a few "problems" with the
wonderfully easy-to-use and friendly Pico text editor.

First and foremost is its license: the Pine suite does not use the
GPL or a GPL-friendly license, and has unclear restrictions on
redistribution. Because of this, Pine and Pico are not included
with many GNU/Linux distributions. Also, other features (like go
to line number or search and replace) were unavailable until
recently or require a command line flag. Yuck.

nano aims to solve these problems by emulating the functionality of
Pico as closely as possible while addressing the problems above and
perhaps providing other extra functionality.

The nano editor is now an official GNU package. For more
information on GNU and the Free Software Foundation, please see
http://www.gnu.org/.

How to compile and install nano

Download the nano source code, then:
tar zxvf nano-x.y.z.tar.gz
cd nano-x.y.z
./configure
make
make install

It's that simple. Use --prefix with configure to override the
default installation directory of /usr/local.

If you configured with the "--enable-nanorc" option, after
installation you might copy the doc/nanorc.sample to your home
directory, rename it to ".nanorc", and then edit it according to
your taste.

Mailing List and Bug Reports

Savannah hosts all the nano-related mailing-lists.

+ info-nano@gnu.org is a very low traffic list
used to announce new nano versions or other important
information about the project.
+ help-nano@gnu.org is for those seeking to get help without
wanting to hear about the technical details of its
development.
+ nano-devel@gnu.org is the list used by the people
that make nano and a general development discussion list, with
moderate traffic.

To subscribe, send email to nano-<name>-request@gnu.org with a
subject of "subscribe", where <name> is the list you want to
subscribe to.

For general bug reports, send a description of the problem to
nano@nano-editor.org or directly to the development list.

Current Status

GNU nano has reached its third stable milestone, 2.0.x.
Development of new features continues in the 2.1.x branch, while
2.0.x versions are dedicated to bug-fixing and polishing.
