More Programming Features in Epsilon 12

The pull-word command on Ctrl-<Up> and F3 can now retrieve completions from the current tags file, when there are no more completions earlier in the buffer. It can pull text at prompts, so you can use it to easily search for more instances of a word, without typing the whole word or navigating to it first. It can pull text when point is inside a word, making editing easier. And it now skips adjacent duplicate words.

Use the new comment-region command on Ctrl-C Ctrl-R to comment out a range of text, using commenting rules for the current mode on all lines in the region. With a numeric prefix argument like Ctrl-U Ctrl-C Ctrl-R, it uncomments lines in the region.

In some modes Epsilon now reindents the current line when you press <Enter>, in addition to indenting the new one. The variables c-reindent-previous-line, vbasic-reindent-previous-line, and default-reindent-previous-line control this.

Alt-Q now knows how to fill comments in more languages. Auto-breaking of comment lines is now enabled in more languages. The new variable auto-fill-comment-rules lets you customize when and how Epsilon breaks comment lines.

You can now select which types of items (functions, variables, macros, etc.) Epsilon will tag, and which the list-definitions command will display. See the tag-which-items and list-which-definitions variables. The new (in 12.10) tag-display-width variable customizes the look of a list of tags.

The next-error command can now be set to work with telnet or ssh (see below) buffers, so as it parses error messages from the compiler running on the server, it translates each file name into a URL Epsilon can use to retrieve that files. See Internet Support.
