SYNOPSIS

adie [options] [ files... ]

INTRODUCTION

Adie is an extremely fast and convenient programming text editor using the FOX Toolkit. The text being edited can be colorized by user-configurable colors and user-configurable syntax rules. However, many programming languages are already supported with supplied syntax coloring rules in the "Adie.stx" rules-file. At this time, syntax rules are available for C, C++, C#, Pascal, Python, Fortran, Ada, Ruby, Perl, Lua, Java, JavaScript, Go, Assembler, Shell, Matlab, and many more. The rule-set used for colorizing is determined either by file-extensions or by file contents, but may be forced explicitly if needed.

For each visited file, Adie remembers the location in that file, bookmarks, and whether custom syntax rule-set was used so that next time the file is visited, the user will be positioned at the same place in the file, and the text will be colorized like last time.

OPTIONS

-?, -h, or --help
  Print summary usage information of all the supported options.

-v --view Open the file for viewing only. Editor commands which change the text are not allowed.

-e --edit Open the file for editing.

-V --version
  Display version and license information.

-l <number> --line <number>
  Jump to given line number after opening file for editing.

-c <number> --col <number>
  Jump to given column number after opening file for editing; often used in addition to the previous parameter to jump to a particular place in the text.

-S <syntax> --syntax <syntax>
  Load the syntax rules from the given syntax file rather than searching for the syntax file in the usual places (a file called "Adie.stx" in one of the $PATH directories, or the syntax file listed in the configuration settings).

-L <language> --lang <language>
  After loading the file, switch to the given programming language for syntax coloring. The normal rules for determining the file’s syntax (file extension of content maching) are ignored.
