File Handling in Epsilon 10

  • Ctrl-X Ctrl-L follows a link to a different file named on the current line. It works with plain text files, and also understands #include in C-like buffers, <a href=> in HTML-like buffers, and corresponding syntax rules in other languages. See the find-linked-file command.

  • The new locate-file command looks for a file by name, searching all local drives. For Unix, this command looks through particular parts of the directory hierarchy; see the locate-path-unix variable.

  • The rename-buffer command lets you rename the current buffer. Use this to rename the process buffer under Unix, so that Ctrl-X Ctrl-M will start an additional process

  • The suspend-epsilon command under Unix returns control to the shell that launched Epsilon. Use the shell's fg or bg command to resume Epsilon. When Epsilon runs with X, though, this command instead minimizes Epsilon's application window.

  • The new find-read-only-file command reads a file but won't permit changing its buffer.

  • The new change-file-read-only command lets you toggle whether or not a file is read-only.
