Nontext is a revolution in terminal based text editors. It uses a new paradigm in which the user and the computer are in a cordial conversation. Here is a typical Nontext session:
Did you see that? Nontext said please and thankyou. There is no other text editor which interacts so warmly with people.
Nontext has countless other advantages. Vim users take pride in "never leaving the home row". This is blatantly false: Dozens of commands require you to move your finger up or down one key! In Nontext, every command is on the home row, and none of them require you to hold shift. Emacs occupies 26 megabytes of hard drive space, while Nontext uses less than 4 kilobytes. Do the math: Emacs requires 650,000% more memory. The clear winner is Nontext.
You are probably eager to obtain this fantastic text editor. Fortunately, Nontext is free and open source. The program is designed for Unix, but it may also work on Windows. To install and run:
From here you enter command mode. The editor begins with an empty text buffer. Each command may be invoked with a single keystroke. Listed below are all commands and their easy-to-remember mnemonics:
The jingle command requires an additional keystroke to specify a character. Dollop, fire, and leap will kindly request a line of input with PLEASE.
When a command succeeds, Nontext will print YES. If there is a problem, Nontext will print NO. It's very simple!
Repeating the keyhole command moves the cursor forward. This generous feature allows you to view sequential characters without leaping.
That summarizes all of Nontext. It has no other confusing distractions. After practicing for 5 months, you will find yourself preferring Nontext over all other text editors. Trust me.
Disclaimer: This editor is a joke. It does function as described, but is not desirable to use!
