       lpe - Lightweight programmer's editor


       lpe [ --help | --version ]
       lpe [ -- ] file


       This page needs to be translated into Bulgarian!!!

       Lpe  is  a  minimalist,  visual, real-time text editor designed to make
       editing code easier without alienating its user  from  the  shell.   It

       As mentioned above, lpe is designed as a minimalist editor, meant to be
       small and robust and efficient, but not to provide too many superfluous
       features.  For this reason, it should not be difficult to learn to  use
       lpe, provided that one is willing to invest effort to learn a few basic

       Chris Smith,


       Lots  of  'em  --  see  the BUGS file in the distribution for a partial
       list.  I am not planning on updating this man page often enough to keep
       up with the bug list, so I won't even try to list bugs here.
