GNU nano is a console text editor, modelled after Pico. It is very newcomer-friendly due to on-screen menus with always visible keyboard shortcuts. Keybindings are configurable, and full undo and redo actions are supported. Nano even can be used as STDIN pager, and it provides fast syntax highlighting, even for regexps.
major bugfix: 2019 April 24 - GNU nano 4.2 "Tax the rich, pay the teachers" The integrated spell checker does not crash when 'spell' is missing. Option --breaklonglines works also when --ignorercfiles is used. Automatic hard-wrapping is more persistent in pushing words to the same overflow line.
