4.9.29 Modified

Syntax: Modified [0|1]
Abbreviation: MOD

sets the modified flag. This flag is set automatically whenever a document is modified, and is used to determine which documents need to be saved by SaveAll or when ne exits. Normally you would not alter this flag, but when a document is inadvertently modified and you don’t want the changes saved, Modified provides a way to make ne consider the document unchanged.

If you invoke Modified with no arguments, it will toggle the flag. If you specify 0 or 1, the flag will be set to false or true, respectively. An asterisk (‘*’) will appear on the status bar when this flag is set. If your terminal supports underlining, it will be underlined if the corresponding file’s modification time has changed since the document was loaded or saved (perhaps by another user).
