       katoob  is  a  light  weight, multi lingual, BiDi aware text editor. It
       supports opening and saving  files  in  multiple  encodings.  The  main
       support  was  for  Arabic  language  but  more  languages are currently


       This program follows the usual  GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options  starting  with  two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary of options is
       included below.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -      Read input from the standard input.

              Specifies the files to be opened. Multiple files  are  supported
              but  they  should  be separated by spaces, Reading from pipes is
              also supported by using a dash  "-".   If  no  files  specified,
              Katoob’ll start with an empty document.

       Opening multiple files:
              katoob foo.txt bar.text zot

       Opening a file called foo and the output of cat:
              cat bar | katoob foo -

       Reading from a pipe:
              ls | katoob -

       Reading from multiple pipes:
              katoob - -

       Here  katoob’ll  try to read from the standard input 2 times.  To close
       the standard input you  should  press  CTRL-D  For  each  dash  passed,
       Katoob’ll reopen the standard input and read from it.


       Something  like  cat  foo | katoob - - "should read cat output and then
       wait for the user input and open each one in a  separate  document"  is
       not supported.
