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, GNU nano also implements many features missing in Pico, including:

  • undo/redo
  • line numbering
  • syntax coloring
  • soft-wrapping of overlong lines
  • selecting text by holding Shift
  • interactive search and replace (with regular expression support)
  • a go-to line (and column) command
  • support for multiple file buffers
  • auto-indentation
  • tab completion of filenames and search terms
  • toggling features while running
  • and full internationalization support
