SYNOPSIS

CE [ -keyset ] | [ -w -m -s -hhelpfile -lline# ] filename

DESCRIPTION

CE is a simple easy to use UNIX editor. It is designed to be used with minimal training. It can use special keys on terminals that support them.

  forces CE to create a keymap file in the users home directory for the terminal type which the user is currently using. The file name will be ~/.ce/cekm.vt100 where vt100 is replaced by the particular terminal type.

Note: If you invoke this multiple time, the file will be appended to, as can map multiple sequences to the same key. To reset this file you must delete it by hand

Note: It is possible to create a user keymap for a particular terminal that overrides the system wide keymap for that user by using this option.

-w Toggle wordwrap.
-m Toggle the mini-menu on/off
-s Toggle scrolling (SmoothScroll/PageScroll)
