       ne  is a free text editor that runs on (hopefully almost) any UN*X machine.  ne is easy to
       use for the beginner, but powerful and fully configurable for the wizard, and most sparing
       in its resource usage.

       This   documentation  is  incomplete.   The  Texinfo/info/HTML/PDF  documentation  is  the
       authoritative source (try info ne or info -f ne).
