To read the HTML documentation you can do edbrowse /usr/share/doc/edbrowse/usersguide.html To read (say) 20 lines of the buffer at a time starting from the top use the command `0z20' followed by repeating `z' to scroll another 20 lines at a time. To quit the editor completely type `qt' . Upon quitting edbrowse, any changes not explicitly saved with a `w' command are lost. The `w' command does not apply to URLs but one can save the corresponding buffer to a file by the command w file.

The default is 1 which prints the sizes of buffers. Some people like 2 which prints out URLs as they are retrieved. This value can be changed within the editor with the dbx command with x a value between 0 and 9. -c Edit config file. This command suppresses the processing of the configuration file $HOME/.ebrc and starts editing it instead. This option is useful if this file is syntactically incorrect or otherwise corrupted.
$HOME/.ebrc Configuration file. The file which edbrowse reads when it starts up. If the file exists then it must be syntactically correct.
When an error occurs, if edbrowse it prints a `?' and returns to command mode. An explanation of the last error can be printed with the `h' (help) command. Attempting to quit edbrowse with the `q' command or trying to edit another file before writing a modified buffer results in an error. If the command is entered a second time, it succeeds, but any changes to the buffer are lost.
