       tilde - an intuitive text editor for the console/terminal


       tilde [OPTIONS] [FILE[:LINE[:COLUMN]]]...


       Tilde  is  a  text  editor  for  the  console/terminal,  which tries to be as intuitive as
       possible for users who are accustomed to GUI environments such as Gnome, KDE and  Windows.
       For  example,  the  short-cut to copy the current selection is Control-C, and to paste the
       previously copied text the short-cut Control-V can be used. As another example,  the  File
       menu can be accessed by pressing Meta-F.


       Tilde accepts the following options:

       -b, --black-white
              Force  Tilde  to  use  black  &  white mode. Only attributes such as reverse video,
              underline and bold text will be used to create the interface. This option overrides
              the setting from the configuration file.

       -c, --color
              Request  Tilde  to  use  color  mode.  This  option  overrides the setting from the
              configuration file. If the terminal does not support color,  or  does  not  provide
              sufficient colors, this option will be ignored.

       -C config, --config=config
              Use  configuration  file config instead of the default configuration file, which is
              typically ~/.config/tilde/config.

       -e encoding, --encoding=encoding
              Open any files named on the command line using character encoding encoding, instead
              of the default UTF-8 encoding.

       -h, --help
              Display a short help message.

       -I, --select-input-method
              Ask  the user to select the input handling method immediately after start-up, as if
              the user had not previously selected one for the current terminal type.

       -J, --no-parse-file-position
              Do not attempt parse the line and column from the file names passed on the  command
              line.  Without  this option, if the file name ends in a colon followed by a number,
              or two such numbers, they will be interpreted as the position in the file  to  jump
              to.  With  this option, those colons and numbers will be interpreted as part of the
              file name.

       -P, --no-primary-selection
              Disable the use of the primary selection mechanism (a.k.a.  "middle-button  paste")
              for the external clipboard. This can be useful for using Tilde over SSH connections
              in combination with a  Clipboard  Manager  which  can  result  in  slow-downs  when
              selecting text.

       -T terminal, --terminal=terminal
              Set the terminal type to terminal, overriding the TERM environment variable.

       -V, --version
              Print version and copyright information.

       -x, --no-ext-clipboard
              Tells Tilde not to attempt to connect to the X11 clipboard.

       To  stop  Tilde  from  interpreting  file names that start with a dash as options, one can
       specify a double dash (--) after which Tilde will interpret  any  following  arguments  as
       files to read.
