Simple *nix text editor
CE is a simple, easy to use unix text editor. It allows full cursor control (you must have cursor keys to use it). It will also support Function keys if your terminal has them. It lets *nix new-comers, those who aren't technically minded, or those who don't want to learn one of the larger, less user friendly *nix editors. The design goal was to have just about any computerphobic person using CE in the shortest amount of time possible (ideally, under 20 minutes), with the smallest amount of documentation possible. It has enough features for text editing for rather good editing for just about anything. CE has been written entirely within CE since version 1.1e.
