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 A Java Runtime Environment Version 1.7 or later.

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.
-- Specifies the end of command-line processing. Further parameters are treated as file names, even if they begin with a dash.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

-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.
-nosettings
  Start jEdit without loading user-specific settings.
-startupscripts
  Run startup scripts. This is the default. Has no effect when connecting to another instance via the edit server.
-nostartupscripts
  Disable startup scripts. Has no effect when connecting to another instance via the edit server.

EDIT SERVER OPTIONS

For information about the edit server, see the section "Starting jEdit" in the jEdit online help.

-background
  Run jEdit in background mode. In background mode, the edit server will continue listening for client connections even after all views are closed. Has 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.
-gui Open an initial view. This is the default. Has no effect when connecting to another instance via the edit server.
-nogui Do not open an initial view, and instead only open one when the first client connects. Can only be used in combination with the -background switch. 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.
-server Store the server port info in the file named "server" inside the settings directory. This is the default.
-server=name
  Store the server port info in the file named "name". File names for this parameter are relative to the settings directory.
-noserver
  Do not attempt to connect to a running edit server, and does not start one either.

FILES
