Led is a small, fullscreen text editor for unix, primarily intended for use as a programming editor. Programming modes do syntax highlighting and can do auto indentation. Keybindings, colors, and general options may be changed in each user's ~/.ledrc file. Features include multiple buffers, unlimited undo, better text killing commands, improved isearch and reverse searching, vertical and horizontal split screens, improved syntax highlighting, optional Perl scriptability, and an extensible, stackable view architecture which will someday be explained here.
