       This manual page documents briefly the efte.

       This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but
       may be used by others), because the original program does  not  have  a
       manual  page.  Instead, it has documentation in html format; see below.

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


       efte 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

              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 -.

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

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


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

       VIOFONT - select font used by xefte

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

              load /usr/bin/vefte in BIN mode

       efte -mBIN -+ -bla-
              load file -bla- in BIN mode

       efte -l100,30 win.c
              go to (100,30) in win.c

       efte window.cpp
              load file window.cpp

       efte -- -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6
              load files -1, -2, -3, -4, -5, -6

       efte -D -H efte.dsk efte.his
              disable  desktop  and  history loading and saving and load files
              efte.dsk and efte.his



       Default  configuration  files.  Includes  all  keybindings  and   menus
