'ale' (Another Linux Editor) is a small, fast text editor with very basic features. It is designed to edit or create config files or other text based files. It supports long line lengths (65535 characters), and the number of lines is limited only by the available memory. It has a basic text search function, goto line, and other basic editing functions. It is not intended to be an IDE or to parse regex expressions, but when you need speed and low overhead.
