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 can even be used as STDIN pager, and it provides fast syntax highlighting using regular expressions.
minor bugfix: "Ranrapalca". Making certain replacements after a large paste does not crash. Hitting a toggle at the Search prompt does not clear the answer. Using --positionlog does not complain at the first start. A macro containing a Search command will not sometimes fail.
