Nice job Albrecht,
You have fulfilled my dreams with the new e3 !!!

Thank you for the Nedit mode
Here are the results of my first tests:

1. The Openfile/Newfile feature is neat. It has some problems, though:
-selection remains active when the starting screen opens
-current buffer is written to the disk without prompt

2. By the way, is there any shortkey to "close the selection"? I mean, if
starting a selection with ^SPACE, it will expand until I press ^C or ^X. What

if I don't want to copy or cut the selection in fine? Pressing ^SPACE again
starts a new selection from current position.

3. Pressing an arrow key in HELP screen will insert some text

4. Wish-list: an auto-crop feature (go to line after N characters, default

OUUUUUUPS I got a segmentation fault. I tried too much games typing this text

with the new e3 ;-)

Concerning the new EX-mode in vi flavor:

Why not add the current line number before the command, so sed could move to
current line before executing the command? Using "." in the command should
do the action on the current line. Does not seem too much of a change :-)

> a) Linux only: the vi mode now uses /bin/sed as child process in EX mode.

> 1,6 s/foo/bar/g
> 2,$ d
> 8,$ w filecopy
> s/./\./g

> c) Also there are some bugfixes, please compare ChangeLog.
> d) In Linux now we use UPX packer at URL
> e) e3.c in included again
> f) as a special exception (due UPX) I've added a Linux binary to the
