Features in Epsilon 10 for Unix

  • You can use Epsilon's Info reader to read system documentation provided in info format. Type F1 I to enter Info, then type D if necessary to go to the top of the info tree.

  • To access system man pages, Epsilon provides a handy man command. It prompts for the man item, with completion. Then it brings up a nicely colored man page, in a special editing mode. You can jump to any other referenced man pages by double-clicking on them, or by positioning point on them and typing <Enter>.

  • Epsilon puts user-specific files (like any session file or customized state file), in a directory named .epsilon in the user's home directory.

    When Epsilon needs to find one of its configuration files, it looks by default in the following places, in order:

    ~/.epsilon
    /usr/local/epsilonVER   where VER is the current version
    /usr/local/epsilon
    /opt/epsilon

    You can override this search path by providing an explicit EPSPATH environment variable.

  • With X, Epsilon uses the standard-gui color scheme, which it also uses under Windows. Outside of X, Epsilon uses the xterm-color color scheme if invoked from an xterm, otherwise it uses the standard-color color scheme. The xterm-color scheme inherits the background and foreground colors of the underlying xterm.

  • Of course, under Unix the file translation mode defaults to Unix, not DOS.
