set-show-graphic

Enable or disable use of IBM graphic characters.

By default, Epsilon displays most control characters by prefixing to them a caret, e.g., Control C appears as "^C". It displays other characters, including national characters, with their graphic symbol. Epsilon has four different modes for displaying all these characters.

In mode 0, Epsilon displays Meta characters (characters with the 8th bit on) by prefixing to them a "M-", e.g., Meta C appears as "M-C". Epsilon display Control-meta characters by prefixing to them "M-^", e.g., "M-^C". Epsilon displays most control characters by prefixing to them a caret, e.g., Control C appears as "^C".

In mode 1, all-graphic mode, Epsilon uses graphic characters to display all control characters and meta characters (except for the few that have a special meaning, like <Tab> or <Newline>).

In mode 2, hex mode, Epsilon displays control and meta characters by their hexadecimal ASCII values, with an "x" before them to indicate hex.

In mode 3, which is the default, Epsilon displays control characters as "^C", and uses the graphic symbol for other characters, as described above.

If you provide no numeric argument, this command cycles to the next mode in the above list. A numeric argument of 0, 1, 2, or 3 selects the corresponding mode.
