This manual page documents briefly the fte.

Some detailed documentation is available html format, see below.

fte is a powerful text editor which closely resembles Borlands programming editors for
M$-DOS, but is far more flexible and configurable.


fte uses a command line syntax, which is a little bit different from most of Debian
GNU/Linux apps.

-h -? --help
Help on command line options.

-! Ignore any external configuration file and use internal configuration.

Go to line (and column) in next file on command line.

Same as -l. Do not use this option.

Set mode for next files to <mode>. If just plain -m, then use default mode.

Use specified configuration file (compiled). Plain -C does the same as -!.

Load/save desktop from file <.dsk>. If no argument, disable desktop load/save.

Load/save history from file <.his>. If no argument, disable history load/save.

Load 'tagfile' at startup.

Lookup tag 'tag' and display file containing it.

-- The rest of the arguments are not options, but filenames.

-+ The next argument is not an option even if starting with a '-'. Useful when
loading files that begin with a -.

Do not use locales in xfte - useful if you have incorrect locales.

-noxmb Do not use XMB functions in xfte - useful if you have incorrect locales and you
want to use just english fonts.

-font Select XWindow font to use with xfte. See VIOFONT also.


This is list of variable which might change behavior of some internals of fte.

VIOFONT - select font used by xfte

ISOCONSOLE - when set, vfte is usign ascii symbols to draw tables. This is useful when iso
latin charset is used on console.
