       medit - text editor


       medit [OPTION]... [FILES]


       medit is a text editor.


       -n, --new-app
              run  new instance of medit. By default medit opens FILES (or creates a new document
              if none are given) in an existing instance of application

       -s, --use-session[=yes|no]
              load and save session. By default medit does it when  -n  is  not  used.   If  this
              option  is  not given on command line then medit uses the corresponding preferences

       --pid PID
              use existing instance with process id PID.

       --app-name NAME
              use instance name NAME. If an instance with this name is already running,  then  it
              will send files given on the command line to that instance and exit.

       -e, --encoding ENCODING
              use provided character encoding to open the file

       -l, --line LINE
              open  file  and  position  cursor  on  line  LINE. Alternatively line number may be
              specified with filename, e.g.  medit foo.txt:12

       -r, --reload
              automatically reload opened file if it was modified on disk by another program.

       -w, --new-window
              open file in a new window.

       -t, --new-tab
              open file in a new tab.

       --log-file FILE
              write debug output into FILE. This option is only useful on Windows.

              show debug output in a log window. This option is only useful on Windows.

       --debug DOMAINS
              enable debug output for DOMAINS (if medit was compiled with --enable-debug option).

       --geometry WIDTHxHEIGHT

       --geometry WIDTHxHEIGHT+X+Y
              default window size and position.

       -h, --help
              show summary of options.

       -v, --version
              show program version.

       FILES  list of files to open.  Filenames  may  include  line  numbers  after  colon,  e.g.
              /tmp/file.txt:200. Trailing colon is ignored.


              if  set,  it  is  used  as  --pid argument. When medit spawns a process (e.g. a DVI
              viewer) it sets MEDIT_PID to its own process id, so the child process may  in  turn
              simply use 'medit filename' to open a file (e.g. for inverse DVI search).
