Explain

Hi,
What exactly do you mean?
Can you reframe the question. Little more explanation on what you want will help to answer.

Wow, that's an involved question. Also, I don't think that it is particularly related to linux. I guess you could start by reading the source code: http://www.nano-editor.org/

Hope you're not a troll.

What is the context of this question? For example, are you taking some kind of class in computer science?

How does any editor work? I imagine something like this:
Read a file into a buffer
Provide a display of the contents
Provide a user interface for editing---eg selecting with mouse, movable cursor, selecting with control-keys, etc.
Provide a user interface for storing the contents of the buffer---including options to select a new filename
