RNANO(1) General Commands Manual RNANO(1)

rnano - a restricted nano

rnano [options] [[+line[,column]] file]...

rnano runs the nano editor in restricted mode. This allows editing only the specified file or files, and doesn't allow the user access to the filesystem nor to a command shell.

In restricted mode, nano will:

not make backups;
not allow suspending;
not allow spell checking;
not read nor write the history files;
not allow saving the current buffer under a different name;
not allow inserting another file or opening a new buffer;
not allow appending or prepending to any file.

Show the available command-line options and exit.

For all existing options, see the nano(1) man page.
