       gnome-text-editor, gedit - Text Editor for the GNOME desktop.

       gnome-text-editor  |  gedit [--encoding=encoding] [--new-document] [--new-window] [+[num]]
       [gnome-std-options] [filename]

       gedit or gnome-text-editor 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. Multiple documents can be
       edited at the same time.  Each document resides in a specific tabbed section of the appli-
       cation window.

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

       The following options are supported:

       --encoding=encoding     Set the character encoding to be used to open the files listed  on
			       the command line.

       --new-document	       Create  a  new top-level document or tabbed section in an existing
			       instance of gedit.

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

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

       gnome-std-options       Standard options available for use with most  GNOME  applications.
			       See gnome-std-options(5) for more information.

       The following operands are supported:

       filename 	       The name of the image file to edit.

       The  gedit  application accepts pipes, so you can specify a pipe after another command, to
       load the output of the command into gedit. For example:

       example% ls -l | gedit

       Example 1: To Edit an ASCII File Named document.txt

       example% gedit document.txt

       Example 2: To Add a New Tab That Contains an ASCII File Named book.txt

       example% gedit --new-document book.txt

       Example 3: To Add a New Top-Level Window That Contains an ASCII File Named testfile.txt

       example% gedit --new-window testfile.txt

       The following exit values are returned:

       0	Application exited successfully.

       >0	An error occurred.

       The following files are used by this application:

       /usr/bin/gedit		       The executable file for the gnome-text-editor application.

       /usr/bin/gnome-text-editor      A symbolic link to the gedit executable file.

       /usr/lib/gedit/plugins	       Location of gedit plugins.

       /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/gedit   Location of developer documentation for	writing  a  gedit
