Running Programs in Epsilon 10

  • You can use the new filter-region command on Alt-| to process the region between point and mark through an external command. By default, the external command's output goes to a new buffer. Run filter-region with a numeric argument if you want the output to replace the current region.

  • Under NT, Epsilon now sets its current directory to that of the concurrent process (as long as you let the command processor cmd.exe use its standard prompt that includes the current directory).

  • Epsilon supports multiple concurrent processes under Unix. Rename the concurrent process buffer using Alt-x rename-buffer and the start-process command on Ctrl-X Ctrl-M will create a second concurrent process. Epsilon's compilation commands also use this feature, and compile in a separate concurrent process buffer.

  • By default, the make command now runs in the current buffer's directory.

  • It's now easier to extend Epsilon's error parsing. Epsilon can now check a series of regular expression patterns that match possible errors.

  • Epsilon for Windows can now send DDE messages to other programs.

  • If the process-enter-whole-line variable is 2, Epsilon copies old lines to the end of the process buffer to make it easier to repeat commands.
