Unix-specific Enhancements in Epsilon 11

  • Epsilon for Unix now works with the -add flag (to add files to an existing Epsilon session). The -dde flag, now renamed -server, now also works under Unix to set the server name Epsilon uses. The Unix version also recognizes a -wait flag. It works like -add, but also tells the sending Epsilon process to wait until the user issues the resume-client command. This is useful if you want to set an external editor for a program, and have the request go to an existing Epsilon session.

  • The EEL compiler is now more integrated under Unix. As a result, commands like eval and execute-eel now work, and you can compile and load EEL source files without saving them to disk first.

  • Epsilon for FreeBSD now understands Alt keys when running on the console keyboard with a suitable keymap. A new variable national-keys-not-alt lets you control whether Epsilon recognizes Alt keys or national language characters in those Unix environments where only of these at a time may be used (such as the FreeBSD console).
