Running sandy
Use the following syntax:

	sandy [-r] [-S | -s SYNTAX] [-t TABSTOP] [File]

-r opens the file read-only
-S use no syntax colors at all.
-s SYNTAX  lets you specify the syntax colors for this file
-t TABSTOP sets the tabstop for this instance of sandy

cancer though. We were sad and started coding this editor.
