NAME
       gedit - text editor for the GNOME Desktop

SYNOPSIS
       gedit [OPTION...] [FILE...] [+LINE[:COLUMN]]
       gedit [OPTION...] -


DESCRIPTION
       gedit is the official text editor of the GNOME desktop environment.

       While  aiming at simplicity and ease of use, gedit is a powerful general purpose text edi-
       tor.  It can be used to create and edit all kinds of text files.

       gedit features a flexible plugin system which can be used to dynamically add new  advanced
       features to gedit itself.

OPTIONS
       --encoding
	      Set  the	character encoding to be used for opening the files listed on the command
	      line.

       -g, --geometry=GEOMETRY
	      Set the X geometry window size (WIDTHxHEIGHT+X+Y).

       --list-encodings
	      Display list of possible values for the encoding option and exit.

       --new-window
	      Create a new toplevel window in an existing instance of gedit.

       --new-document
	      Create a new document in an existing instance of gedit.

       -s, --standalone
	      Run gedit in standalone mode.

       -w, --wait
	      Open files and block the gedit process.

       --help Prints the command line options.

       --version
	      Output version information and exit.

       FILE   Specifies the file to open when gedit starts. If this is not specified, gedit  will
	      load a blank file with an "Unsaved Document" label. Multiple files can be loaded if
	      they are separated by spaces.  gedit also supports handling of  remote  files.  For
	      example,	 you   can   pass   the   location   of   a   webpage  to  gedit  ,  like
	      "http://www.gnome.org",	or   load   a	file   from   a    FTP	  server,    like
	      "ftp://ftp.gnome.org/robots.txt".

       -      gedit will read from stdin

       +LINE  For the first file, go to the line specified by LINE (do not insert a space between
	      the "+" sign and the number).  If LINE is missing, go to the last line.

       COLUMN For the first file, go to the column specified by COLUMN.  If COLUMN is missing, go
	      to the first column.
