Chapter 5: Configuration

In this chapter we will see how the menus and the key bindings of ne can be completely configured. Note that the configuration is parsed at startup time, and cannot be changed during the execution of the program. This is a chosen limitation.

It should also be remarked that the standard configuration of ne does not contain key bindings relative to the META key. This choice was forced by the fact that the behaviour of this key is unpredictable on most systems. If your META key does what it should (i.e., it rises the high bit of any character), you can configure about thirty new shortcuts---the CONTROL-META-letter combinations---which will produce ASCII characters between 128 and 159, and will be parsed as shortcuts by ne.
