nano - Nano's ANOther editor, an enhanced free Pico Clone
nano [options] [+LINE] file
This manual page documents briefly the nano command. nano was originally known as TIP (TIP Isn't Pico). It is a small, free and friendly editor which aims to replace Pico, the default editor included in the non-free Pine package. Rather than just copying Pico's look and feel, nano also implements some missing (or disabled by default) features in Pico, such as "search and replace" and "goto line number".
