GNU Moe is a powerful, 8-bit clean, console text editor for ISO-8859 and ASCII character encodings. It has a modeless, user-friendly interface, online help, multiple windows, unlimited undo/redo capability, unlimited line length, global search/replace, block operations, automatic indentation, word wrapping, filename completion, directory browser, duplicate removal from prompt histories, delimiter matching, etc.

Moe tries to rationalize the keyboard commands. The Alt key is used for harmless commands like cursor movements and scrolling. The Control key is used for more "dangerous" commands like copying text blocks, deleting lines, or exiting. The Tab key is used for filename
completion and also shows/hides the directory browser when Moe asks for a filename to save or load. In any case, the unlimited undo/redo capability of Moe makes very difficult to accidentally cause an irreparable damage to your files.

Moe uses the function keys, so that the most frequent commands can be issued with only one finger. The function key F1 shows the online help, and F10 allows you to change the options. Believe it or not, this paragraph and some experience with text editors is all you need to use Moe just as well as an expert. Forget about `learning curves'; there is nothing to learn.
