NAME

        Minimum Profit - Programmer text editor



SYNOPSIS

        mp-5 [options] [+NNN] [file [file...]]



DESCRIPTION

       Minimum  Profit  (mp)  is a text editor for programmers. Among its fea-
       tures are the following:

        - Fully scriptable using a C-like scripting language.
        - Unlimited undo levels.
        - Complete Unicode support.
        - Multiple files can be edited at the same time and blocks copied
          and pasted among them.
        - Syntax highlighting for many popular languages / file formats: C, C++,
          Perl, Shell Scripts, Ruby, Php, Python, HTML...
        - Creative use of tags: tags created by the external utility _ctags_
          are used to move instantaneously to functions or variables inside
          your current source tree. Tags are visually highlighted (underlined),
          and symbol completion can be triggered to avoid typing your own function
          names over and over.
        - Intelligent help system: pressing F1 over any word of a text being edited
          triggers the underlying system help (calling _man_ when editing C or Shell
          files, _perldoc_ with Perl, _ri_ on Ruby, _winhelp_ on MS Windows...).
        - Understandable interface: drop-down menus, reasonable default key bindings.
        - Configurable keys, menus and colors.
        - Text templates can be easily defined / accessed.
        - Multiplatform: Console/curses, KDE4, GTK+, MS Windows.
        - Automatic indentation, word wrapping, internal _grep_, learning /
          repeating functions.
        - Spellchecking support (via the ispell package).
        - Multilingual.
        - Password-protected, encrypted text files (using the ARCFOUR algorithm).
        - It helps you abandon vi, emacs and other six-legged freaks definitely.



OPTIONS

       The following options are avaiable:


       -t tag Edits the file where tag is defined (see ctags(1)).

       -e mpsl_code
              Executes MPSL code.

       -f mpsl_script
              Executes an MPSL script.

       NNN    Moves to line number NNN of last file.


MPSL

       MPSL (Minimum Profit Scripting Language) is a powerful programming lan-
       guage  embedded  in  the Minimum Profit Text Editor (a huge part of the
       editor itself is written in MPSL). Its features are  too  large  to  be
       inserted here; please read the documentation.
