excellent performance on very large files
Congratulations for the nano developers! A long time nano user for small tasks, I discovered today the syntax highlighting abilities and all the features that can be activated with the .nanorc file. This is simply amazing. Nano also saved my day when it allowed me to edit a very large text file that neither SciTE (an excellent editor by itself, that I use for writing code since it does auto-complete in a very useful way) nor powerful vim (in the user-friendly Cream incarnation) wanted to handle gracefully.
Having auto-completion would push nano at the top of the text editors list for me. It is almost there with all the features and its no-nonsense interface. Thank you very much.
