Simple, small text editor

PE is a very easy tiny console mode text editor that gives the user a simple and direct interface via a command bar. PE is based on the Curses libraries so the text can be displayed black on white. The yellow command bar is displayed on the bottom of the screen. Line and colon counters are provided on the right end of the command bar. Warning messages are displayed on the command bar for critical events. I18n is implemented in v0.5, gettext functions are encodes. UTF-8 encoding up to four bytes is implemented.
