3.1: Arguments

The main argument you can give to ne is a list of files you want to edit. They will be loaded within separate documents.

The --noconfig option allows to skip the reading of the key bindings and menu configuration files (see Configuration). This is essential if you are experimenting a new configuration, and you make mistakes in it.

The --macro filename option allows to specify the name of a macro that will be started just after all documents have been loaded. A typical macro would move the cursor on a certain line.

The --keys filename option and the --menus filename option allow to specify a different name than the default one (`.keys' and `.menus', respectively) for the key bindings and the menu configuration files. Note that these files are searched firstly in the current directory, and then in the `$HOME/.ne' directory.
