e3 is a console text editor with multiple personalities, A single executable that emulates other editors.WordStar,Emacs,Pico,Nedit, orvi

Usage

Type one of the following into a console to invoke e3 with the desired emulation. (please note not all emulations are 100% identical to their corresponding editor)

 e3ws 

keyboard commands for WordStar mode

 e3em 

emacs emulation, There are no key bindings that use the Meta key.

 e3pi 

Pico emulation.

 e3ne 

Nedit emulation.

 e3vi 

vi emulation. This is inferior to the busybox vi. No support for "set" commands No support for f<char> to seek to next instance of <char>. Instead, use "/" or "?" No support for "n" to repeat a search. Instead, use "/" or "?" with no pattern; this repeats the previous search.


ALT-h usually gives help, EXCEPT in e3vi mode, where you have to use ESC-h instead.

e3 in all modes creates backup files named xxx~. These are NOT automatically deleted.
