funced - edit a function interactively




funced provides an interface to edit the definition of the function NAME.

If the $VISUAL environment variable is set, it will be used as the program to edit the function. If $VISUAL is unset but $EDITOR is set, that will be used. Otherwise, a built-in editor will be used. Note that to enter a literal newline using the built-in editor you should press Alt+Enter. Pressing Enter signals that you are done editing the function. This does not apply to an external editor like emacs or vim.

If there is no function called NAME a new function will be created with the specified name

  • -e command or --editor command Open the function body inside the text editor given by the command (for example, -e vi). The special command fish will use the built-in editor (same as specifying -i).
  • -i or --interactive Force opening the function body in the built-in editor even if $VISUAL or $EDITOR is defined.
  • -s or --save Automatically save the function after successfully editing it.
