Edit a configuration. By default, a Tk GUI will be opened if "Config::Model::TkUI" is installed. You can choose another user interface with the "-ui" option:
"tk": provides a Tk graphical interface (If "Config::Model::TkUI" is installed).
"curses": provides a curses user interface (If Config::Model::CursesUI is installed).
"shell": provides a shell like interface. See Config::Model::TermUI for details. This is equivalent to running "cme shell" command.

Common options

See "Global Options" in cme.
