Starting and Stopping Epsilon
You generally exit the editor with Ctrl-X Ctrl-Z, which runs the
command exit-level. If in a recursive editing level,
exit-level will not exit, but bring you back to the level
that invoked the recursive edit. If you haven't saved all your
files, Epsilon will display a list using bufed and ask if
you really want to exit.
You may also use exit, Ctrl-X Ctrl-C, to exit the editor. It
ignores any recursive editing levels. When given a
numeric argument, Epsilon won't warn you about
unsaved files, write a session file (see the next section), record
your current font settings, or similar things. It will simply exit
immediately, returning the numeric argument as its exit code (instead
of zero, returned for a normal exit).
You can customize Epsilon's actions at startup by defining a hook
function using EEL. See Starting and Finishing.
In Epsilon for Unix, an alternative to exiting Epsilon is to suspend
it using the Alt-x suspend-epsilon command. This returns
control to the shell that launched Epsilon. Use the shell's fg
command to resume Epsilon. When Epsilon runs as an X11 program, this
command instead minimizes Epsilon's window.
