4.9: Preferences Commands

These commands allow you to set your preferences, i.e., the value of a series of flags which modify the behaviour of ne (some of the flag commands, like the command for the indent flag, appear in other sections). The status of the flags can be saved and restored later (the file saved is just a macro which suitably sets the flags). The back search and the read only flags are not saved, because they do not represent a preference, but rather a temporary state. The escape time is global to ne, and it is not saved. The turbo parameter is better set at run time by ne. However, you can add manually to a preferences file any preferences command (such as EscapeTime or Turbo); usually, this will be done to the default preferences file `$HOME/.ne/.default#ap'.

Note that there is an automatic preferences system, which loads automagically a preferences file related to the extension of the name of a file. The automatic preferences files are kept in a directory named `.ne' (in your home directory), and they are named as an extension postfixed with `#ap'. Each time you open a file whose name has an extension for which there is an automatic preferences file, the latter is executed. If you want to inhibit this process, you can clear the automatic preferences flag. See AutoPrefs.
