1. About jEdit
--------------
jEdit is a text editor written in Java. I wrote it to learn more about JFC
programming. This is a pre-release version. See the VERSION file to see what
remains to be done.

jEdit is released under the GNU General Public License, read the enclosed
COPYING file for more information. Basically, you can share jEdit and modify it
all you want, but you must give away your modifications under the same terms.

2. Installing jEdit
-------------------
jEdit requires a Java 1.1 compatible runtime and Sun's Java Foundation Classes
version 1.0.x. jEdit does NOT currently run with Swing 1.1beta3 or higher. When
1.1 is finished, I'll port jEdit, but in the meantime, use 1.0.x or 1.1beta2.

A Java runtime for Solaris and Windows can be found at
<http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.1>. A Linux version is available at
<http://java.blackdown.org>. The JFC can be obtained from
<http://java.sun.com/products/jfc/index.html>.

2.1. Unix
---------
Use the supplied Makefile. Log in as root and `make install' in the jEdit
directory. If for some reason you want to recompile the source, do a `make'
before the `make install'.

By default, everything will be installed under /opt/slava. If you want to
install jEdit elsewhere, edit the Make.rules file.

2.2. Windows 95, 98 and NT
--------------------------
Use the makeit.bat batch file to compile it if necessary and the installit.bat
batch file to install it. By default, everything will be installed under
C:\Program Files\jEdit. If you don't like this, edit installit.bat file.

2.3. MacOS
----------
Could someone with MRJ tell me more about how MRJ handles standalones?

3. Getting Started
------------------
To get started with jEdit, I suggest you take a look at doc/index.txt. Also,
check out the etc/ directory, it contains some useful goodies.

Have fun!
