Searching & Navigation in Epsilon 10

  • Searches now wrap. A failing search wraps around to the other end of the buffer, and displays Wrapping in the echo area. If you continue to search and find matches you have already seen, Epsilon displays Overwrapping. The variable search-wraps controls this feature.

  • Searching commands no longer have a 255 character limit on the search string.

  • Search strings saved in Epsilon's history list may now contain newlines.

  • We changed the way Epsilon indicates your position in the buffer. Usually it displays a percentage in the echo area, like it did before. But if the top of the buffer is visible in the window, Epsilon displays Top in place of the percentage. Similarly, if the bottom of the buffer is visible, Epsilon displays Bot. If the entire buffer is visible, Epsilon displays All. But if point is at the very end of the buffer, Epsilon displays End instead of Bot or All.

    To get the previous behavior, modify the mode-format variable and replace %p with %P.

  • The keys Alt-<PageUp> and Alt-<PageDown> now page horizontally, instead of resizing the window horizontally.

  • The new command jump-to-column on Alt-g goes to a specified column.

  • The goto-line command accepts a buffer percentage like 30%, or a line number like before. You may add a :column number after either, as in 10:20 to go to line 10, column 20.

  • Ctrl-Tab now moves among windows like Ctrl-X N. Shift-Ctrl-Tab moves like Ctrl-X P.
