NAME

kate - KDE Advanced Text Editor

SYNOPSIS

kate [options][file(s)]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the kate command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
kate is a powerful text editor for KDE. It allows multiple documents (MDI interface), syntax coloration for many languages, ... It is able to expand or collapse parts of code (C functions, ...), can handle complete projects, and includes a terminal emulator. Kate is primarily intended for developers but can be used by anyone. It will for example be very useful to edit configuration files for example. It can handle plugins to expand its capabilities (more languages support, vim/Emacs compatibility, ...)
