set-display-characters

Select new screen characters.

The set-display-characters command lets you alter the various characters that Epsilon uses to construct its display. The command displays a matrix of possible characters, and guides you through the selection process.

The first group specifies which graphic characters Epsilon should use to draw window borders. It defines all the line-drawing characters needed for drawing four different styles of borders, and all possible intersections of these.

The next group specifies which characters Epsilon uses to display various special characters like <Tab> or Control-E. For example, Epsilon usually displays a control character with the ^ symbol. Set the appropriate character in this group to make Epsilon use a different character. You can also make Epsilon display a special character at the end of each line, or change the continuation character.

The following group defines the characters Epsilon uses to display window scroll bars. Epsilon replaces the window's selected border characters with characters from this group. The last group is for a graphical mouse cursor, unused in the current version.
