NAME gedit - text editor for the GNOME Desktop
SYNOPSIS gedit [--help] [--encoding] [--new-window] [--new-document] [+[num]] [filename(s)...]
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 dynami- cally add new advanced features to gedit itself.
OPTIONS --help Prints the command line options.
--encoding Set the character encoding to be used for opening the files listed on the command line".
--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.
+[num] For the first file, go to the line specified by "num" (do not insert a space between the "+" sign and the number). If "num" is missing, go to the last line.
filename(s)... Specifies the file to open when gedit starts. If this is not specified, gedit will load a blank file with an "Unsaved Docu- ment" 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".
