SYNOPSIS

gnp [options] [files ...]

DESCRIPTION

Gnotepad+ is an easy-to-use, yet fairly feature-rich, simple HTML and text editor for Unix based systems running X11 and using GTK (the Gimp ToolKit). Gnotepad+ was designed to have as little bloat as possible, while still providing many of the common features found in a modern GUI-based text editor. It is still fairly light-weight, especially for the features it offers, and aims to remain that way.

The "+" in gnotepad+ is there to differentiate it from other GTK-based text editors which may call themselves "gnotepad". Additionally, gnotepad+ is not intended to be fancy, so it leverages its text editing capabilities on the GTK Text Widget. Hence, if you are looking for a programmers’s editor, look for another text editor or help improve the GTK Text Widget.

On startup gnp will create the directory .gnp within the user’s home directory. The user may create the file gtkrc in that directory and put GTK-specific settings there. Four additional files, apprc, appgtkrc, recentrc, and sessionrc, are also created there. They are maintained by the program itself, so the user should never need to edit these two files.
