if none are given) in an existing instance of application

-s, --use-session[=yes|no]

option is not given on command line then medit uses the corresponding preferences

use instance name NAME. If an instance with this name is already running, then it
will send files given on the command line to that instance and exit.

specified with filename, e.g. medit foo.txt:12

if set, it is used as --pid argument. When medit spawns a process (e.g. a DVI
viewer) it sets MEDIT_PID to its own process id, so the child process may in turn
simply use 'medit filename' to open a file (e.g. for inverse DVI search).
