process-completion-style: preference variable

Default value: 2

You can press <Tab> in the process buffer to have Epsilon finish typing the name of a command or file. Bits in this variable control how Epsilon provides that completion when there are multiple matches.

A value of 1 makes Epsilon use Windows-style completion, as in cmd.exe; press <Tab> to show the first match; press it again to show the next match, or press Shift-<Tab> to show the previous match. Without this bit, Epsilon uses Unix-style completion: if <Tab> can't add any characters, it tells how many matches there are, and a second press shows all the matches.

A value of 2 makes Epsilon skip the directory entries . and .. and any other entries starting with a . when listing matches. This is the default.

A value of 4 modifies how Epsilon does Unix-style completion. By default, if there are a small number of matches, Epsilon displays them in the echo area. If there are many matches, Epsilon lists them in the buffer. With this bit flag, Epsilon always lists the matches in the buffer.

A value of 8 makes Epsilon display the full path of the completed file name when there is only one match.
