resume-client

Tell a waiting client you've finished editing.  Ctrl-C #

You can set up Epsilon for Unix so an external program can run it as its editor. This is typically done by setting the EDITOR environment variable. The external program will invoke the editor program, and then wait for it to exit before continuing with its work.

You may have an existing session of Epsilon running, and want all editing requests from other programs to be routed to the existing session. You can set that up with Epsilon by setting EDITOR to epsilon -wait. The external program will run a second copy of Epsilon (the client), which will pass the name of the file to be edited to the existing Epsilon session (the server), and wait for the server before continuing.

When you've finished editing the passed file, save it, and then use the resume-client command to notify the client instance of Epsilon that the editing job is done, and it should exit.
