NANO-TINY(1) General Commands Manual NANO-TINY(1)


nano-tiny - Nano's ANOther editor, an enhanced free Pico Clone


nano-tiny [options] [+LINE] file


This manual page documents briefly the nano-tiny command.

nano is a small, free and friendly editor which aims to replace Pico, the default editor included in the non-free Pine package. Rather than just copying Pico's look and feel, nano also implements some missing (or disabled by default) features in Pico, such as "search and replace" and "goto line number".
nano-tiny is a special, minimal build of the program, aimed for Debian's boot-floppies or emergency disks.
