It is possible to pass command line options to the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). These options can change certain things about how Java runs, such as the maximum heap size, or whether antialiasing is used in certain places.
For operating systems such as Linux where jEdit is started via a
shell script, you can easily edit the

-jar command line option with the
java command to run jEdit (which is how the default
shell scripts do it), remember that the
parameter must be the last
java option, followed

JVM options are located in a separate file, called
jEdit.l4j.ini. Create or edit this file in the same
jEdit.exe and place one JVM option per
On Mac OS X, the jEdit.app bundle gets JVM options from a file called
Contents/Info.plist, which can be edited with a text editor.
There is no complete list of options to
