Join Scott Simpson for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with multiple files in buffers, part of Learning nano.
- While you're using nano,…you don't have to just work with one file at a time.…While you can't have multiple windows of nano…visible in the same terminal session at the same time,…like you could with a graphical text editor,…you can open up a series of buffers or files…and switch between them and copy text between them too,…so I'll open up our first poem in nano.…To open up an additional buffer,…I'll press Control R to read a file,…then I'll press Meta-F to add a new buffer.…
I have the opportunity to read a file into this new buffer,…or just press Enter to open the blank one,…and then I can switch back and forth…between these open buffers…with Meta-, and Meta-.…so, if I close this buffer with Control X,…it switches me to the next available buffer.…
