It often happens that you have to browse through a file, switching frequently
between a small number of positions. In this case, you can use
bookmarks. There are ten bookmarks per document: they can be set with
SetBookmark command, and reached with the
command. See SetBookmark, and see GotoBookmark. Note that in the
default configuration no key binding is assigned to these commands: if you use
them frequently, you may want to change the key bindings. See Key Bindings.
ne allows a simplified form of binary editing. If the binary flag
is set, only NULLs are considered newlines when loading or saving. Thus, binary
files can be safely loaded, modified and saved. Inserting a new line or joining
two lines has obviously the effect of inserting or deleting a NULL. Please be
careful to not mismatch the state of the binary flag when loading and saving
the same file.
NoFileReq command allows to deactivate the file requester. It is
intended for ``tough guys'' who always remember the name of their files and can
type them at the speed of light.
Should you need to execute UN*X commands while using
ne, you have
three possibilities. The
System command can run any UN*X command; you
will get back into
ne as soon as the command execution terminates.
See System. The
Through command (which can be found in the
Edit' menu), however, is much more powerful: it cuts the current
block, passes it as standard input to any UN*X command, and pastes the
command output at the current cursor position. The neat effect with filter
commands (UN*X commands which read from standard input and write to standard
sort) is that the currently selected block is passed
through the filter. See Through. You can also use the
command in order to temporarily stop
ne. See Suspend.
