medit [OPTION]... [FILES]
medit is a text editor.
- -n, --new-app
run new instance of medit. By default medit opens FILES
(or creates a new document if none are given) in an existing instance
- -s, --use-session[=yes|no]
load and save session. By default medit does it when -n is not used.
If this option is not given on command line then medit uses the corresponding
- --pid PID
use existing instance with process id PID.
- --app-name NAME
use instance name NAME. If an instance with this name is already running,
then it will send files given on the command line to that instance and exit.
- -e, --encoding ENCODING
use provided character encoding to open the file
- -l, --line LINE
open file and position cursor on line LINE. Alternatively
line number may be specified with filename, e.g.
- -r, --reload
automatically reload opened file if it was modified on disk by another program.
- -w, --new-window
open file in a new window.
- -t, --new-tab
open file in a new tab.
- --log-file FILE
write debug output into FILE. This option is only useful on Windows.
show debug output in a log window. This option is only useful on Windows.

- --geometry WIDTHxHEIGHT
- --geometry WIDTHxHEIGHT+X+Y
default window size and position.
- -h, --help

- -v, --version
show program version.
list of files to open. Filenames may include line numbers after colon,
e.g. /tmp/file.txt:200. Trailing colon is ignored.
if set, it is used as --pid argument. When medit spawns a process (e.g. a DVI viewer) it sets
MEDIT_PID to its own process id, so the child process may in turn simply use 'medit filename'
to open a file (e.g. for inverse DVI search).
