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 Picos look and feel, nano also implements some missing (or disabled by default) features in Pico, such as "search and replace" and "go to line number".
rnano is a restricted version of nano, which only edits specific files and doesnt allow the user access to the filesystem or a command shell.
In restricted mode, nano will not:
|[bu]||read or write to any file not specified on the command line;|
|[bu]||read any nanorc files;|
|[bu]||allow a file to be appended to, prepended to, or saved under a different name;|
use backup files or spell checking.
|Places cursor at line number LINE and column number COLUMN on startup, instead of the default of line 1, column 1.|
|-?||Same as -h (--help).|
|Show a summary of command line options and exit.|
|Show the current version number and exit.|
