NAME
       Pluma - The MATE	Text Editor

SYNOPSIS
       pluma [OPTIONS...] [FILES...]

DESCRIPTION
       Pluma  is  the  official	 text  editor of the MATE desktop environment.
       While aiming at simplicity and ease of use, Pluma is a powerful general
       purpose	text  editor.  It  can be used to create and edit all sorts of
       text files.

       Pluma features a	flexible plugin	system which can be  used  to  dynami-
       cally add new advanced features to Pluma	itself.

       This manual page	briefly	documents the pluma command.

OPTIONS
       filename(s)...

	      specified, pluma will start a new, blank file with  an  "Unsaved
	      Document"	 label.	Multiple files can be loaded if	they are sepa-
	      rated by spaces. pluma also supports handling of remote files.

       +[num] For the first file, go to	the line specified by  "num"  (do  not
	      insert  a	 space between the "+" sign and	the number).  If "num"
	      is missing, go to	the last line.
