       e3  has  an arithmetic calculator built in for some simple
       arithmetic calculations inside your text. Place cursor  at
       begin  of  the  task i.e. something like:  -3.002*-(2--3)=
       and press one of:

       ^KN    in Wordstar mode

       ^QC    in Pico mode


       You can switch to other editor mode by pressing one of:

       ^KM    in Wordstar mode

       ^QM    in Pico mode

       altX   in Emacs mode

       <ESC>; in vi command mode

       ^E     in Nedit mode

       e3 will set a prompt SET MODE . Now  enter  one  of  e3ws,
       e3em,  e3pi, e3vi, e3ne for setting Wordstar-like or Emacs
       or Pico or vi or Nedit style.


       e3 accepts a filename for text editing. Switch the  editor
       mode  depending  of  the  binary  name, one of e3ws, e3em,
       e3pi, e3vi, e3ne


       e3     is an  assembled  executable  for  Linux,  FreeBSD,
              NetBSD,  OpenBSD,  BeOS(tm),  QNX(tm).  e3ws, e3em,
              e3pi, e3vi, e3ne are symbolic links to e3.

       e3.exe is an assembled executable for 32 bit Win  versions
              like 95/98/ME, but not suitable for 16 bit versions
              of Win.

       e3c    is a 'C' compiled executable for some  other  plat­
