'PE' is a small, simple console mode text editor which gives the user simple and direct interface via a command bar. It is based on the Curses libraries so the text can be shown black on white; the yellow command bar itself is shown on the bottom of the screen. The right end of the command bar has both line and colon counters. 'PE' fits in a 80x25 console display or on a 80x25 Xterm; any smaller value will disturb its functionality. It is limited to 3000 lines of 79 characters; it cuts longer lines at char 79 and inserts the remaining part on the next line while automatically inserting a '\' at the end of the line.
