.SH NAME
gnp+ \- gnotepad+, a GTK-based notepad/text editor
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B gnp
.RB [ "options" ] 
.RB [ "files ..." ] 
.SH DESCRIPTION
.B Gnotepad+
is an easy-to-use, yet fairly feature-rich, simple text editor for
Unix based systems running X11 and using GTK (the Gimp ToolKit).
Gnotepad+ was designed to have as little bloat as possible, while
still providing many of the common features found in a modern
GUI-based text editor.  It is still fairly light-weight, especially
for the features it offers, and aims to remain that way.

The "+" in gnotepad+ is there to differentiate it from other GTK-based
text editors which may call themselves "gnotepad".  Additionally,
gnotepad+ is not intended to be fancy, so it leverages its text
editing capabilities on the GTK Text Widget.  Hence, if you are
looking for a programmers's editor, look for another text editor or
help improve the GTK Text Widget.

On startup
.B gnp
will create the directory
.I .gnp
within the user's home directory.  The user may create the file
.I gtkrc
in that directory and put GTK-specific settings there.  Three
additional files,
.IR apprc ", " appgtkrc ", and " recentrc ,
are also created there.  They are maintained by the program itself,
so the user should never need to edit these two files.

.SH OPTIONS
.TP
.B "\-\-help"
displays a help screen.
.TP
.B "\-\-info"
shows the compiler options used at build stage.
.TP
.B "\-\-version"
displays the version and exits.
.TP
.B "\-\-nofork"
runs
.B gnp
in the foreground.  By default,
.B gnp
forks and runs itself
in the background automatically.
