NAME
       gedit - text editor for the GNOME Desktop


SYNOPSIS
       gedit [OPTION]... [FILE]...

DESCRIPTION
       gedit is the official text editor of the GNOME desktop environment.

       While aiming at simplicity and ease of use, gedit is a powerful general
       purpose text editor.  It can be used to create and edit all kinds of
       text files.

       gedit features a flexible plugin system which can be used to
       dynamically add new advanced features to gedit itself.

OPTIONS
       --help Prints the command line options.

       --encoding
              Set the character encoding to be used for opening the files
              listed on the command line".

       --new-window
              Create a new toplevel window in an existing instance of gedit.

       --new-document
              Create a new document in an existing instance of gedit.

       +[num] For the first file, go to the line specified by "num" (do not
              insert a space between the "+" sign and the number).  If "num"
              is missing, go to the last line.

       filename(s)...
              Specifies the file to open when gedit starts. If this is not
              specified, gedit will load a blank file with an "Unsaved
              Document" label. Multiple files can be loaded if they are
              separated by spaces.  gedit also supports handling of remote
              files.  For example, you can pass the location of a webpage to
              gedit, like "http://www.gnome.org", or load a file from a FTP
              server, like "ftp://ftp.gnome.org/robots.txt".

       --version
              Output version information and exit
