More Use of Syntax Coloring in Epsilon 10

Epsilon applies syntax coloring to more kinds of files, including files for Perl, PostScript, GAMS, and assembler. Epsilon also colors makefiles, Unix shell scripts, .ini files, and other configuration files. This makes it much easier to read many of these files. Epsilon also recognizes some variations on existing modes, such as .idl files.

In addition to looking at any file extension, Epsilon scans the file and uses various heuristics to determine how the file should be colored, and what mode to use. This allows Epsilon to correctly classify files that lack an extension, which often occurs under Unix.

The process buffers under Epsilon for Unix interpret ansi escape sequences and appropriately color the output of commands run there, so they appear nicely colored.
