xwordgrinder is a simple character cell word processor that runs on X11. It is primarily
designed for text entry. It's designed to get the hell out of your way and let you write;
it does very little, but what it does it does well.

It supports Unicode, basic paragraph styles, basic character styles, basic screen markup,
a menu interface that means you don't have to remember complex key sequences, HTML import
and export, and some other useful features.

When running, pressing ESC (or ALT + menu shortcut key) will open the menu.


These options follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
two dashes (`-').

--config file.lua
Sets the name of the user config file.


The user config file is a Lua file which is loaded and executed before the program starts
up (but after any --lua files). It defaults to:
