I often invoke joe with a bunch of files to edit at the same time, and it always loads them with split windows. I'd like to just have the first window viewable, and then I can ^K^N to the other ones at my leisure.
As it is, I have to ^K^I or ^]xexplode whenever I go into it. I couldn't find any command line switches that do this. -orphan is close but not the same thing. I've tried piping control characters and commands into joe...
( echo -en "\033"; echo -n "xexplode" ) | joe myfile*
...but all it does is create the character and text in a new window.
Macros were a possible bet. I have it so that it goes to single window mode upon the first keystroke...
-mfirst explode # in the .joerc file
...but I'd really like to know if there's a place to run macros upon loading joe in the first place. I tried -mnew, but that runs the macro when I manually load a file, not when the file is loaded via command-line invocation. And -mnew is probably run on any file load, so it'd keep exploding and imploding every time I load a file. :/
Hints or suggestions? Thanks in advance!
