Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a nice life! :)
I just bumped into this while checking my feed https://linuxiac.com/gnu-nano-5-9/
An excerpt:
In nano 5.9 the extension of a filename is added to the name of a corresponding temporary file, so that spell checking a C file, for example, will check only the comments and strings (when using ‘aspell’).
I use nano most times since it is easy to use, fast and has some really handy features.
