NAME
       ne - A nice editor

SYNOPSIS
       ne [options] files

DESCRIPTION
       ne  is  a  free  text  editor  that  runs  on (hopefully almost) any UN*X
       machine.  ne is easy to use for the beginner, but powerful and fully con‐
       figurable for the wizard, and most sparing in its resource usage.

       This  documentation  is incomplete.  The Texinfo/info/HTML/PDF documenta‐
       tion is the authoritative source (try info ne or info -f ne).
