Creating a file using a filename


   ue filename

to create a new file. For instance, to create a new file called letter, type:

   ue letter

The screen of your terminal will fill with blank lines and the following message will be displayed at the bottom:

== MicroEMACS 3.9e() == letter == File: letter ========

This consists of:

  1. the name MicroEMACS and the version number
  2. the editing mode you are in (this changes as you change modes)
  3. the name of the temporary work file used to store the file you are editing (the computer term for this is 'buffer')
  4. the name of the file that text will be written to

The bottom line of your screen is used for messages from ue and for prompting you for information which you may need to type.
