Joe, Joe’s own editor is a powerfull text editor. It is not installed in the system by default, but it can easily be installed with the packet manager.
Installing Joe on the most important Linux distros:
Install Joe on Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint:
$ sudo apt-get install joe
Install Joe on Fedora / CentOS:
$ sudo yum install joe
Install Joe on openSUSE:
$ sudo zypper in joe
The first steps in Joe:
To edit a file in Joe, do this:
$ joe /path/to/file
It edits the /path/to/file if it exists, or create a new file, in the other case.
I recommend you to use joe -help /path/to/file, to get the help window.
The Default Joe Key Combination Shortcuts:
To save, press: Ctrl – KD
To save and quit, use: Ctrl – KX
To quit without saving, hit the classical Ctrl – C
To open a new file press Ctrl – KE and type the full path to your file.
