small, friendly text editor inspired by Pico

GNU nano is an easy-to-use text editor originally designed as a replacement for Pico, the ncurses-based editor from the non-free mailer package Pine (itself now available under the Apache License as Alpine).

However, nano also implements many features missing in pico, including:

 - feature toggles;
 - interactive search and replace (with regular expression support);
 - go to line (and column) command;
 - auto-indentation and color syntax-highlighting;
 - filename tab-completion and support for multiple buffers;
 - full internationalization support.
