eval

Compute and display the value of an expression.

This command prompts for an expression, then computes and displays its value using the integrated EEL compiler. The expression may have a numeric or string type. With a numeric prefix argument, this command inserts the result into the current buffer instead of displaying it. Also see the execute-eel command.

You can append a semicolon followed by a printf-style formatting character or sequence, and Epsilon will use that to display the result. For instance, adding ;x displays the result in hexadecimal.
