NE, Ne or ne may refer to:

NE (complexity)

In computational complexity theory, the complexity classNE is the set of decision problems that can be solved by a non-deterministic Turing machine in time O(k) for some k.

NE, unlike the similar class NEXPTIME, is not closed under polynomial-time many-one reductions.

Ne (kana)

, in hiragana, or in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, each of which represents one mora. The hiragana is made in two strokes, while the katakana is made in four. Both represent .

As a particle, it is used at the end of a sentence, equivalent to an English, "right?" or "isn't it?" It is also used as slang in Japan to get someone's attention, the English equivalent being "hey" or "hey, you."

Ne (text editor)

ne (for "nice editor") is a console text editor for POSIX computer operating systems such as Linux or Mac OS X. It uses the terminfo library, but it can also be compiled using a bundled copy of the GNU termcap implementation. There is also a Cygwin version. It was developed by Sebastiano Vigna of the University of Milan.

ne is intended to provide an alternative to vi that will be more familiar to beginners 1 and modern users and still be portable across all POSIX-compliant operating systems, and remain usable on slow remote connections. It uses GUI-derived keyboard shortcuts such as to quit and to open a file instead of the multi-mode command structure of vi. It supports many features common in advanced text editors, such as syntax highlighting, regular expressions, configurable menus and keybindings and autocomplete. ne can pipe a marked block of text through any command line filter using the Through command bound to by default.2 ne supports UTF-8 encoding and is 8-bit clean.

ne was originally developed on an Amiga 3000T3 using the curses library and was inspired by that platform's TurboText editor, which was written by Martin Taillefer. Development then moved to Linux in order to take advantage of the terminfo library. Todd Lewis joined the development team, donating code he wrote to add features required at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which implemented ne as part of their migration of their research computers from MVS to UNIX.4. Daniele Filaretti helped with syntax highlighting using code derived from the Joe editor.5

Version 2.6 adds narrowing for the file open screen, adds status indicators in the open documents list and improves syntax highlighting. Version 3.0 is fully 64-bit: file size and line length are limited only by the core memory available.

Linux Voice has rated ne as the third best editor for Linux.

Né (river)

The is a 66.1 km long river in the Charente and Charente-Maritime départements, in southwestern France.

Ne (cuneiform)

The cuneiformNe sign, is found in both the 14th century BC Amarna letters and the Epic of Gilgamesh. In the Amarna letters, it is especially used in the opening, and introductory paragraph of the clay tablet letter, when addressing the Pharaoh (King), or when sent to another individual who is part of the Pharaoh's correspondence, for the alternate syllabic usage of "bil", (used for the 'b'). In the Amarna letters, it is used as Bil (cuneiform), for the spelling of speaks, or "says", in the opening statement; the Akkadian language word is "qabû", for to say, tell. (There is a wide range of sign usage in the 300+ Amarna letters for spelling "qabû" in the introduction, or in the texts; some of the Amarna letters are texts other than actual 'letters'.)

The ne (cuneiform) sign has the following uses, besides "ne", in the Epic of Gilgamesh:

bil-(=bí (bi2)) kúm ne pil ṭè BIL ( sumerogram usage) NE

The sign is a "two-part" compound sign. The center and left is the sign for am (cuneiform), and the right is the sign for is (cuneiform), , (and listed as Giš (cuneiform), cuneiform "GIŠ" (the "is" sign) being the use for GIŠ (wood Sumerogram)).

The specific usage numbers for the sign's meaning in the Epic of Gilgamesh is as follows: bil-(9), kúm-(5), ne-(1), pil-(2), ṭè-(13), BIL-(3), NE-(1).

In the Amarna letters, the sign is used for spelling qabû in the introduction for letters: EA 9, EA 19, EA 141, EA 144, EA 205, EA 254, EA 270, EA 271, and EA 367, as well as some others.
