Searching Features in Epsilon 13

  • Literal replacement text in a search and replace can now be much longer.

  • Grep has new subcommands Alt-n and Alt-p that move to the next or previous match in a different file. (Use Alt-[ and Alt-] to move to the next or previous searches.)

  • The new count-words command displays the number of words in the current buffer or region. With a prefix argument, it prompts for a search pattern, then counts its matches.

  • Searching commands now record failed searches in command history. The new toggle-case-fold command toggles the case-fold setting for the current buffer.

  • Typing Ctrl-Q Ctrl-@ at a search prompt to search for a null character now works.

  • In a search command, you can now retrieve the last pattern you used in that particular buffer by pressing Alt-g. (13.01)

  • The new #S code in replacement text can be used to more easily swap words in a list of alternatives.

  • The search-in-region variable has a new flag that makes grepping a single buffer restrict itself to a highlighted region. (13.00) The new command search-region restricts searches to the current region without first setting search-in-region. (13.04)

  • During incremental searching, keys bound to the delete-character command, like <Del> or Ctrl-D, now delete the highlighted match and exit the search. The new search-delete-match variable controls this. (13.06)

  • The buffer-grep command is new, providing an alternative to invoking grep with a numeric argument, so you can bind it to a key.

  • The new wrap-grep variable lets you customize whether the grep command sets the current window to horizontally scroll long lines or wrap them. (13.04)
