ShortStack: Wordgrinder

This isn't a review due to not having a device to review with. However
due to the raspberry pi's limited memory (yet it has more than my
first computer had) and processing speed I'm always on the lookout for
slimming things where possible.

http://wordgrinder.sourceforge.net

It is not WYSIWYG. It is Command Line, but apparently it does do
formatting and outputs to .html (meaning basically anything can read
it.)

The author cites 6300 lines of code. Not sure if that's good or bad in
comand line applications but if this lets me do formatted text and is
easy to use then I won't have to rely on nano.

Anyone out there familiar with the program able to give some feedback?
