Viewing a file

You can look at a file without altering its contents by running MicroEMACS in view mode. Use this mode when you want to check the contents of a file or to look at a file which belongs to another user. To do this use the -v option.

To look at the file letter you would type:

   ue -v letter

Notice that the status line contains the word VIEW. This tells you that you are in view mode.
