NAME
jEdit Programmer's Text Editor written in Java


SYNOPSIS
jedit [ options ] [ files ]


DESCRIPTION
This manual page briefly documents jEdit's command line parameters. Complete documentation can be found by invoking the Help >jEdit Help menu item within
jEdit or by invoking jedit usage.

jEdit is a cross platform text editor written in Java. It has an extensive feature set that includes syntax highlighting, auto indent, folding, word wrap,
abbreviation expansion, multiple clipboards, powerful search and replace and much more.

Furthermore, jEdit is extremely customizable, and extensible, using either macros written in the BeanShell scripting language, or plugins written in Java.
With plugins, you can create a very powerful development environment for HTML, XML, C/C++, Python, Perl, Ruby, Lisp, Scheme, and many others.

jEdit Requires Sun Java 2 version 1.5.

jEdit is released under the GNU General Public License, which can be found in the online help.

GENERAL COMMAND LINE USAGE
When opening files from the command line, a line number or marker to position the caret on can be specified like so:

$ jedit MyApplet.java +line:10

$ jedit thesis.tex +marker:c

Command line switches begin with a " ". Some take a parameter. A file whose name begins with " " can be opened like so:

$ jedit myfile


MISCELLANEOUS OPTIONS
log=level
Set the minimum log level to an integer between 1 and 9. Default is 7. Has no effect when connecting to another instance via the edit server.

usage Show a brief command line usage message without starting jEdit. This message is also shown if an invalid switch was specified.

version
Show the version number without starting jEdit.

plugins
Enable loading of plugins. This is the default. Has no effect when connecting to another instance via the edit server.

noplugins
Disable loading of plugins. Has no effect when connecting to another instance via the edit server.

restore
Restore previously open files on startup. This is the default.

norestore
Do not restore previously open files on startup.

run=script
Run the specified BeanShell script. There can only be one of these parameters on the command line.

settings=dir
Store user specific settings in the directory named "dir", instead of the default $HOME/.jedit. The directory will be created automatically if it does
not exist. Has no effect when connecting to another instance via the edit server.

EDIT SERVER OPTIONS

no effect when connecting to another instance via the edit server.

nobackground
Disable background mode. This is the default. Has no effect when connecting to another instance via the edit server.

You can use this switch to "pre load" jEdit when you log in to your computer, for example. Has no effect when connecting to another instance via the
edit server.
