       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


       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

              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

       -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.

       fte -mBIN -+ -bla-

              fte.dsk and fte.his
