  Description     : a text editor for the console/terminal with intuitive interface

Tilde is a text editor for the console/terminal, which aims to be as
intuitive as possible for users who are accustomed to GUI environments
such as Gnome, KDE and Windows. For example, the short-cut to copy the
current selection is Control-C, and to paste the previously copied text
the short-cut Control-V can be used. As another example, the File menu
can be accessed by pressing Meta-F.

The main audience for Tilde is users who normally work in GUI
environments, but sometimes require an editor for a console/terminal
environment. This may be because the computer in question is a server
which does not provide a GUI, or is accessed remotely over SSH. Tilde
allows these users to edit files without having to learn a completely
new interface, such as vi or Emacs do. A result of this choice is that
Tilde will not provide all the fancy features that Vim or Emacs provide,
but only the most used features.
