Keyboard shortcuts in Pico or GNU Nano

Basic operations

Pico displays a menu bar of commonly used commands at the bottom of the screen. Pico accepts commands from your keyboard but not from your mouse. The following are some of Pico’s basic operations:

  • Inserting text: To insert text into your Pico editing screen at the cursor, just begin typing. Pico inserts the text to the left of the cursor, moving any existing text along to the right. Each time the cursor reaches the end of a line, Pico’s word wrap feature automatically moves it to the beginning of the next line. (Also see ”Justifying text”.)
  • Cursor movement: To move the cursor, use the arrow keys or use the following commands:
    Ctrl-f Moves the cursor forward one character

    Note: See the Command overview for more cursor movement commands.

  • Deleting text: To delete the character to the left of the cursor, press Backspace, Delete, or Ctrl-h . To delete the character highlighted by the cursor, press Ctrl-d . To delete the current line, press Ctrl-k .
  • Saving your work: To save your edited file to disk, press Ctrl-o . Pico displays the current filename. (To save the file under a different name, delete the filename that Pico displays and type a new one.) Press Enter.
  • Exiting Pico: To exit Pico, press Ctrl-x . If you made any changes since the last save, Pico will ask whether or not to save them. Type y (for yes) or n (for no). If you type y , Pico displays the filename. (To save the edited file under a different name, delete the filename and type a new one.) Press Enter.

Does it mean that the domain is reserved for future use or otherwise unavailable?

Just another day

Well it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood
A beautiful day in the neighbor-hood
Can’t go wrong, I feel strong and the flavor’s good
I’m wit whateva comes my way, hip-hop hooray
Latifah’s on vacation, I’m just plain on day to day
I strap out, step out in every direction
Glock, tech’s, jimmy hat’s, in case I need protection
So I land cruise, play I wanna be’s
A kid in the increase gettin jack right in front of me
So I pull the tech close, my finger’s on the trigger
Don’t wanna get wet, so they step
Cause mine’s is slighty bigger
But better yet, I’ma threat, so ya better walk
Or get sketched out in chalk, cause I don’t wanna talk
I stay true blue, I’m hopin it’s you too
I got the fever for the flava of a??????
So it’s back to the block time to play
It’s just another day around the way, hey
