NAME
       Jed - programmers editor

SYNOPSIS
       jed [options] file ...

DESCRIPTION
       Jed - programmers editor

       Features:

       Color  syntax highlighting.  Emulation of Emacs, EDT, Wordstar, and Brief editors.  Exten-
       sible in a language resembling C. Completely customizable.  Editing TeX files with AUC-TeX
       style editing (BiBTeX support too).  Folding support, and much more...

       For complete documentation, see GNU info files, this manual only provides brief tutorial.

       -i 'file'

CONFIGURATION
	      Emulating Other Editors

       JED's  ability  to  create new functions using the S--Lang programming language as well as
       allowing the user to choose key bindings, makes the emulation of other  editors	possible.
       Currently, JED provides reasonable emulation of the Emacs, EDT, and Wordstar editors.

	      Emacs Emulation

       Emacs  Emulation  is  provided by the S-Lang code in emacs.sl.  The basic functionality of
       Emacs is emulated; most Emacs users should have no problem with JED.  To enable Emacs emu-
       lation in JED, make sure that the line:

	      () = evalfile ("emacs");

       is  in  your  jed.rc  (.jedrc)  startup	file.	JED is distributed with this line already
       present in the default jed.rc file.

	      EDT Emulation

       For EDT emulation, edt.sl must be loaded.  This is accomplished by ensuring that the line:

	      () = evalfile ("edt");

       is in present in the jed.rc (.jedrc) Startup File.

	      Wordstar Emulation

       wordstar.sl contains the S-Lang code for JED's Wordstar emulation. Adding the line

	      () = evalfile ("wordstar");

       to your jed.rc (.jedrc) startup file will enable JED's Wordstar emulation.

RUN TIME
	      Status line and Windows

       JED supports multiple windows.  Each window may contain the same buffer or different  buf-
       fers.  A status line is displayed immediately below each window.  The status line contains
       information such as the JED version number, the buffer name, mode, etc.	Please beware  of
       the following indicators:

       **
	      buffer has been modified since last save.
       %%
	      buffer is read only.
       m
	      Mark set indicator.  This means a region is being defined.
       d
	      File  changed  on disk indicator.  This indicates that the file associated with the
	      buffer is newer than the buffer itself.
       s
	      spot pushed indicator.
       +
	      Undo is enabled for the buffer.
       [Narrow]
	      Buffer is narrowed to a region of LINES.
       [Macro]
	      A macro is being defined.

	      Mini-Buffer.

       The Mini-Buffer consists of a single line located at the bottom of the screen. Much of the
       dialog  between the user and JED takes place in this buffer.  For example, when you search
       for a string, JED will prompt you for the string in the Mini-Buffer.

       The Mini-Buffer also provides a direct link  to	the  S-Langinterpreter.   To  access  the
       interpreter,  press  Ctrl-X  Esc  and  the  S-Lang> prompt will appear in the Mini-Buffer.
       Enter any valid S-Lang expression for evaluation by the interpreter.

       It is possible to recall data previously entered into the Mini-Buffer by using the up  and
       down  arrow keys.  This makes it possible to use and edit previous expressions in a conve-
       nient and efficient manner.

	      Basic Editing

       Editing with JED is pretty easy - most keys simply insert themselves.  Movement around the
       buffer  is  usually done using the arrow keys or page up and page down keys.  If edt.sl is
       loaded, the keypads on VTxxx terminals function as well.  Here, only  the  highlights  are
       touched	upon  (cut/paste  operations are not considered `highlights').	In the following,
       any character prefixed by the ^ character denotes a Control character. On keyboards  with-
       out an explicit Escape key, Ctrl-[ will most likely generate and Escape character.

       A  prefix argument to a command may be generated by first hitting the Esc key, then enter-
       ing the number followed by pressing the desired key.  Normally,	the  prefix  argument  is
       used  simply  for  repetition.  For example, to move to the right 40 characters, one would
       press Esc 4 0 followed immediately by the right arrow key.  This illustrates  the  use  of
       the  repeat  argument  for  repetition.	However, the prefix argument may be used in other
       ways as well.  For example, to begin defining a region, one would press	the  Ctrl-@  key.
       This  sets  the mark and begins highlighting.  Pressing the Ctrl-@ key with a prefix argu-
       ment will abort the act of defining the region and to pop the mark.

       The following list of useful keybindings assumes that emacs.sl has been loaded.

       Ctrl-L

       Ctrl-_
	      Undo  (Control-underscore, also Ctrl-X u').

	      paragraph as well.
       Esc n
	      narrow  paragraph  (wrap mode).  Used with a prefix argument will justify the para-
	      graph as well.

       Ctrl-X 0
	      Delete Current Window
       Ctrl-X 1
	      One Window.

	      Other window.
       Ctrl-X b
	      switch to buffer

	      kill buffer
       Ctrl-X s
	      save some buffers
       Ctrl-X Esc
