A while ago I had a question about global find and replace - d how to
get the current version of nano to put the cursor on whatever is to be
replaced instead of highlighting it. There seemed to be no answer. I
have now found the source for nano 1.2.2, which does just that. It works
fine for my purposes, and I can send it to anyone who wants it.
