Hi,
first a huge thanks for making such a
wonderful editor. Joe is my editor of
predilection for years and I just love it!

One feature I've always missed (well
maybe it's implemented somewhere and
I'm just clueless :) is the ability to reload
the opened file(s) from disk if they have
changed.

Consider:

$ joe foo.cpp
^K Z
$ joe bar.cpp baz.cpp
^K Z
$ cvs up
P foo.cpp
P bar.cpp

=> Ouch. What now? I need to kill all jobs
and reopen from scratch losing my
marks? 8-|

I often keep 10+ files opened in the
background, and making sure they are in
sync when working in a CVS repository is
hard.

    Now JOE will tell you if you try to modify a file which
    changed under you. But there is still no "freshen files"
    command, so I'll leave this bug open.

    This is now a "reload" command which reloads just the current file. Soon I will some kind of "reload_all" command.

    There is now also a reloadall command which reloads all un-modified files.
