xo: the text editor without frills

You might be looking for help, but this is all I can do:

exofrills: your text has been edited...but you are still hungry.

positional arguments:
  path        path to file, may include colon separated line and col numbers,
              eg 'path/to/xo.py:10:42'

optional arguments:
  -h, --help  show this help message and exit
