recall-prior-response-options: preference variable

Default value: 0

Epsilon remembers your previous responses at virtually all prompts, and can recall them. The recall-prior-response-options variable controls how Epsilon does this. Bits in the variable control particular aspects of Epsilon's behavior. Add them together to customize the behavior you want.

By default, keys like <Up> (or Ctrl-P) at a prompt display a list of all previous responses to that prompt. You can then select one, maneuvering in the list using normal Epsilon commands. Set the 1 bit to make <Up> and <Down> instead substitute prior responses in place, without displaying a list. You can still use Ctrl-Alt-P or Alt-<Up> to display the list.

Set the 2 bit to do the same for search prompts. (This doesn't change Epsilon's behavior during incremental search, only in non-incremental mode, grep, replace commands, and so forth.)

Normally pressing Ctrl-N or Ctrl-P repeatedly eventually reaches the youngest or oldest response to that prompt. Set the 4 bit if you want these keys to wrap around to the other end of the list when that happens, so selecting older and older responses will eventually reach the youngest again.

Set the 8 bit if you want to always have Epsilon include a blank response at the very end of the list of responses.
