'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 configurable for the wizard, and most sparing in its resource usage. It has three user interfaces: control keystrokes, command line, and menus. It also includes full support for UTF-8 files, unlimited undo/redo capability, automatic preferences system based on the extension of the file name being edited, and a file requester with completion features for easy file retrieval.
