[using xubuntu 10.04] - the question is regarding the use of Pico for
text 'word' editing rather than programming lines.
I hope it's alright to ask a quick question about Pico on here. It's
Whilst using Alpine having got used to Pico i've decided to use it for
editing. Until now i've been using Leafpad for basic editing. It seems
the graphical editors automatically wordwrap any file if the option
wordwrap is ticked in Options > wordrap.
In Pico if one does ^J and saves the file the wordwrap is set next
time the file is opened. If i use Leafpad and uncheck the wordrap
option the opened file is wordwrapped.
So how is the text file altered by Pico [i've compared with nano and
so it appears this is the case with most text editors]. I was
wondering if there was an option for opening all files with wordwrap
set like there is with nano [according to man pico there isn't unless
i missed it!].
