import-customizations

Build a list of prior customizations.

This command constructs an einit.ecm customization file based on the customizations recorded in your state file for a previous version of Epsilon. It looks for variable definitions, key bindings, color settings and so forth. The new definitions are added to the end of your einit.ecm file, and Epsilon will use them the next time it starts. Epsilon comments out any previous settings in that file, and deletes previous settings it commented out on a previous run. With a numeric argument, it doesn't comment out or delete previous settings.

It works by running the previous version of Epsilon with no customizations loaded, having it generate a complete list of settings, and then comparing that list to the results when the previous version of Epsilon runs with your customized settings. Each difference represents a particular customization.

First it displays the settings it will use for the above process. You can edit them if necessary, for instance to refer to the files of a different installed version that Epsilon didn't automatically locate.

If your previous configuration loaded any EEL extension files to define new commands, you should list them on the settings page shown.

Also see the clean-customizations and list-customizations commands.
