NAME
       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.
