Subject description: A simple comand line text editor.
 

I thought this may be useful for guys like me that enjoy using the command line instead!

I found it on DSL, and I like it more than vi, for simplicity. Based on Pico text editor from Unix. I only use Puppy 4, so other will have to verify that it works on older versions.

To install it I just copied the bin file from DSL and put it in puppy's bin folder ( /bin ).

Bin File: http://theradclan.com/code_m/nano


Of course you could compile but why go to all that trouble?

Just realized I never stated what version it is.

The bin file from DSL is 2.0.7 (stable)

I also found that nano is the easiest file for compiling.

nano-2.0.9.tar.gz (stable)

nano-2.1.5.tar.gz (unstable, testing) 2.1.x is suppose to have better color syntax colors.

If you want to compile, you need devx_xxx.sfs (can be found on ibiblio.org). I did not use any option to compile and had no errors -- use:
./configure
make
make install

I'm glad others find it as useful as I do.

If you compile nano yourself you get to determine your 'frills' level.

Nano no frills

Compile options:
--disable-browser
--disable-help
--disable-justify
--disable-mouse
--disable-operatingdir
--disable-speller
--disable-tabcomp
--disable-wrapping
--enable-tiny

Binary about 62Kb

Nano with frills


Compile options:
don't disable and . . .
--enable-color
--enable-extra
--enable-multibuffer
--enable-nanorc
--enable-utf8

Binary about 146 Kb
plus extra files

How to determine you nano 'frills' level

# nano -V

Wow, thanks Bruce B.

I was wondering if you had to enable color at compile.

...one last thing, in case you didn't know, you can use "make uninstall" to remove a compiled package.

...upgrading and recompiling now...
