gedit [--help] [--debug[-section]] [--new-window] [--new-document] [--quit] [filename(s)...]
gedit is a text editor for the GNOME Desktop.
--help Prints the command line options. --debug[-section] Runs gedit in debug mode. In debug mode function names are dumped to the console when they are invoked. Specific sections for debug- ging are allowed. The sections are: window, commands, document, file, plugins, prefs, print, search, undo, view and recent. Run `gedit --help' for more information. --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. --quit Quit an existing instance of gedit. filename(s)... Specifies the file to open when gedit starts - if this is not specified, gedit will load a blank file with an Untitled label. Multi- ple 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 "", or load a file from a FTP server, like " bots.txt".
Gedit accepts pipes, so it can be run after another command to load the output into gedit. For example : ls -l | gedit
