kate - Advanced text editor for KDE SYNOPSIS
kate [-s, --start name] [--startanon] [-n, --new] [-b, --block] [-p, --pid pid] [-e, --encoding name] [-l, --line line] [-c, --column column] [-i, --stdin] [-u, --use] [KDE Generic Options] [Qt Generic Options] DESCRIPTION
Kate is the KDE Advanced Text Editor. Kate also provides the editor part for various applications, under the name KWrite. Some of Kate's many features include configurable syntax highlighting for languages ranging from C and C++ to HTML to bash scripts, the ability to create and maintain projects, a multiple document interface (MDI), and a self-contained terminal emulator. But Kate is more than a programmer's editor. Its ability to open several files at once makes it ideal for editing UNIX(R)'s many configuration files. This document was written in Kate. OPTIONS
-s, --start name Start Kate with a given session. --startanon Start Kate with a new anonymous session, implies -n. -n, --new Force start of a new Kate instance (is ignored if start is used and another Kate instance already has the given session opened), forced if no parameters and no URLs are given at all. -b, --block If using an already running Kate instance, block until it exits, if URLs given to open. -p, --pid pid Only try to reuse kate instance with this pid (is ignored if start is used and another Kate instance already has the given session opened). -e, --encoding name Set encoding for the file to open You can use this to force a file opened in utf-8 format, for instance. (The command iconv -l provides a list of encodings, which may be helpful to you.) -l, --line line Navigate to this line -c, --column column Navigate to this column -i, --stdin Read the contents of stdin -u, --use Use an already running Kate instance; default, only for compatibility SEE ALSO
More detailed user documentation is available from help:/kate (either enter this URL into Konqueror, or run khelpcenter help:/kate). There is also further information available at the Kate website[1]. EXAMPLES
To open a file named source.cpp at column 15, line 25, in an existing Kate window, you could use: kate -c 15 -l 25 -u source.cpp If you have an active internet connection, you can take advantage of KDE's network transparency to open a file from an ftp site. If you do not have write permission on the remote server, the file will be opened read only and you will be prompted for a local filename to save to if you make changes. If you do have write permission, changes will be saved transparently over the network. kate AUTHORS

kateenc - create Kate streams from text input SYNOPSIS
kateenc [-hVM] [-o outfile] [-l language] [-c category] [-s serial] [-C tag=value] [-R threshold] [-K threshold] -t filetype [ infile ] DESCRIPTION
kateenc creates Kate streams from input files (SubRip SRT subtitles, LRC lyrics, and libkate's custom description language). When saved to an Ogg stream (the default behavior), a Kate stream may then be merged with other Ogg streams (eg, a Theora video) using the oggz tools. OPTIONS
-h Show command line help. -V Show version information. -M Allow simple HTML-like markup in SRT files. If this parameter is used, strings such as "<i>" will be interpreted to mean italics, rather than appear as such. Note that various players interpret a slightly different set of HTML tags, and some do not. -o outfile Write the output Kate stream to the given file name (writes to stdout if not specified). -l language Sets the language for the stream (default is the language specified in the input, or none). -c category Sets the category for the stream (default is the category specified in the input, or none). -s serial Sets the serial number for the output Kate stream (does not apply to raw streams). -C tag=value Adds a comment to encode into the output Kate stream. The comment must be of the form tag=value, and comply with the Vorbis comment rules (eg, tag is composed of a particular subset of ASCII characters, and value is valid UTF-8). Note that you might have to escape or quote the comment for it to be seen as a single command line parameter. -t filetype Specifies the type of the input (srt, lrc, kate) -R threshold Use repeat packets, with the given threshold (in seconds). Data packets will be repeated at intervals of roughly threshold seconds, while active. -K threshold Use keepalive packets, with the given threshold (in seconds). Keepalive packets will be emitted when no other packet has been emit- ted for roughly threshold seconds. EXAMPLES
Create a Kate stream for Welsh subtitles from a SubRip file: kateenc -t srt -l cy -c SUB -o output.ogg SEE ALSO
