About nano

Hi folks,

What is the key combination to move to end of the doc? I can't resolve on reading its help and "man nano". TIA

Open up nano and typ Ctrl + G to see the options. I think you're after M + / or something like that.

In nano both the "home" and "end" keys work for me as well as "CTRL-e" (for end of line) and "CTRL-a" (for begining of line).

SOLVED and another question on mouse scrolling

Hi folks,

I found out the trick;

to move to end document - Ctrl+W followed Ctrl+V
to move to beginning of doc - Ctrl+W followed by Ctrl+Y

A further question on mouse scrolling which I can't resolve for sometimes. According to "HELP (^G) to enable/disable mouse support is M-M. But it did not work here. Pressing [Alt]+M/m has no function. Any advise? TIA
