mp-5 - Minimum Profit Editor, a text editor for programmers
mp-5 [options] [+NNN] [file [file...]]
Minimum Profit (mp) is a text editor for programmers. Among its features are the following:
- Fully scriptable using a C-like scripting language. - Unlimited undo levels. - Complete Unicode support. - Multiple files can be edited at the same time and blocks copied and pasted among them. - Syntax highlighting for many popular languages / file formats: C, C++, Perl, Shell Scripts, Ruby, Php, Python, HTML... - Creative use of tags: tags created by the external utility _ctags_ are used to move instantaneously to functions or variables inside your current source tree. Tags are visually highlighted (underlined), and symbol completion can be triggered to avoid typing your own function names over and over. - Intelligent help system: pressing F1 over any word of a text being edited triggers the underlying system help (calling _man_ when editing C or Shell files, _perldoc_ with Perl, _ri_ on Ruby, _winhelp_ on MS Windows...). - Understandable interface: drop-down menus, reasonable default key bindings. - Configurable keys, menus and colors. - Text templates can be easily defined / accessed. - Multiplatform: Console/curses, Qt4, GTK+, KDE4, MS Windows. - Automatic indentation, word wrapping, internal _grep_, learning / repeating functions. - Spellchecking support (via the ispell package). - Multilingual. - Password-protected, encrypted text files (using the ARCFOUR algorithm). - It helps you abandon vi, emacs and other six-legged freaks definitely.
The following options are avaiable:
MPSL (Minimum Profit Scripting Language) is a powerful programming language embedded in the Minimum Profit Text Editor (a huge part of the editor itself is written in MPSL). Its features are too large to be inserted here; please read the documentation.
Minimum Profit has been written by Angel Ortega <email@example.com> with the help of others (see the AUTHORS file for a complete list).
