Command Line Flags in Epsilon 10

  • The new -vv command line flag instructs Epsilon to split the screen vertically, not horizontally, when more than one file is specified on the command line.

  • The -vx and -vy flags let you specify the position of Epsilon's window in Epsilon for Windows. For example, -vx20 -vy30 positions the upper left corner of Epsilon's window at pixel coordinates 20x30.

  • Epsilon for Unix uses the standard X -geometry flag to position and size Epsilon's window, instead of -vl, -vc, -vx, or -vy. Epsilon for Unix also recognizes the standard X flags -fn or -font to set the font, -display to set the display, -name to specify the name to retrieve resources with (instead of Epsilon), -xrm to specify additional resources, and -borderwidth or -bw to set the border width. It parses and ignores the flags -bordercolor, -bc, -background, -bg, -foreground, and -fg.

  • In Epsilon for Unix, the -vt flag forces Epsilon to run as a curses-style program, not an X program. By default Epsilon for Unix runs as an X program under X, and a curses-style program otherwise.

  • You can now tell Epsilon to go to a particular column (as well as line) from the command line. Write epsilon +10:20 filename to go to line 10, column 20, in the indicated file.
