\fBnano\fP is a small, free and friendly editor which aims to replace
Pico, the default editor included in the non-free Pine package. Rather
than just copying Pico's look and feel, \fBnano\fP also implements some
missing (or disabled by default) features in Pico, such as "search and
replace" and "go to line and column number".
\fBrnano\fP is a restricted version of \fBnano\fP, which only edits
specific files and doesn't allow the user access to the filesystem or a
command shell.
In restricted mode, \fBnano\fP will \fInot\fP:
.IP \[bu] 2
read or write to any file not specified on the command line;
.IP \[bu]
read any nanorc files;
.IP \[bu]
allow suspending;
.IP \[bu]
allow a file to be appended to, prepended to, or saved under a different
.IP \[bu]
use backup files or spell checking.

Places cursor at line number \fILINE\fP and column number \fICOLUMN\fP
(at least one of which must be specified) on startup, instead of the
default of line 1, column 1.
.B \-?
Same as \fB-h (\-\-help)\fP.
.B \-h (\-\-help)
Show a summary of command line options and exit.
.B \-V (\-\-version)
Show the current version number and exit.
