NAMErnano - Restricted mode for Nano's ANOther editor, an enhanced free Pico clone
SYNOPSISrnano [options] [[+line,column] file]...
DESCRIPTIONnano is a small, free and friendly editor which aims to replace Pico, the default editor included in the non-free Pine package. On top of copying Pico's look and feel, nano also implements some missing (or disabled by default) features in Pico, such as "search and replace" and "go to line and column number".
rnano is a restricted version of nano, which only edits specific files and doesn't allow the user access to the filesystem or a command shell.
In restricted mode, nano will not/:
- read or write to any file not specified on the command line;
- read any nanorc files;
- allow suspending;
- allow a file to be appended to, prepended to, or saved under a different name;
use backup files or spell checking.
- -h, --help
- Show a summary of command-line options and exit.
- -V, --version
- Show the current version number and exit.
See the nano(1) manpage for all of the possible options.
