Shell Mode

Epsilon automatically enters shell mode when you read a file with an extension of .sh, .csh, .ksh, .bash, .tcsh, or .zsh, or when you read a file with no extension that starts with a #! line and uses one of these shell names. In Shell mode, Epsilon does appropriate syntax highlighting, recognizing comments, variables and strings.

In Shell mode, Epsilon uses a tab size setting specified by the shell-tab-override variable.

When the cursor is on a brace, bracket, or parenthesis, Epsilon will try to locate its matching brace, bracket, or parenthesis, and highlight them both. If the current character has no match, Epsilon will not highlight it. Set the variable auto-show-shell-delimiters to zero to disable this feature.

Standard bindings:

    shell-mode
