NAME

       gedit - text editor for the GNOME Desktop

SYNOPSIS

       gedit [OPTION...] [FILE...] [+LINE[:COLUMN]]

DESCRIPTION

       gedit is the official text editor of the GNOME desktop environment.

       While  aiming  at  simplicity  and  ease  of use, gedit is a powerful general purpose text
       editor.  It can be used to create and edit all kinds of text files.

       gedit features a flexible plugin system which can be used to dynamically add new  advanced
       features to gedit itself.

OPTIONS

       -b, --background
              Run gedit in the background.

       --encoding
              Set  the  character encoding to be used for opening the files listed on the command
              line.

       -g, --geometry=GEOMETRY
              Set the X geometry window size (WIDTHxHEIGHT+X+Y).

       --list-encodings
              Display list of possible values for the encoding option and exit.

       --new-window
              Create a new toplevel window in an existing instance of gedit.

       --new-document
              Create a new document in an existing instance of gedit.

       -s, --standalone
              Run gedit in standalone mode.

       -w, --wait
              Open files and block the gedit process.

       --help Prints the command line options.

       --version
              Output version information and exit.

       FILE   Specifies the file to open when gedit starts. If this is not specified, gedit  will
              load a blank file with an "Unsaved Document" label. Multiple files can be loaded if
              they are separated by spaces.  gedit also supports handling of  remote  files.  For
              example,   you   can   pass   the   location   of   a   webpage  to  gedit  ,  like
              "http://www.gnome.org",   or   load   a   file   from   a    FTP    server,    like
              "ftp://ftp.gnome.org/robots.txt".

       +LINE  For the first file, go to the line specified by LINE (do not insert a space between
              the "+" sign and the number).  If LINE is missing, go to the last line.

       COLUMN For the first file, go to the column specified by COLUMN.  If COLUMN is missing, go
              to the first column.
