set-variable

Set any EEL variable.  F8

This command prompts for the name of a variable and a new value for that variable. This command cannot set variables with complicated types involving structures or pointers. After setting the variable, Epsilon shows the new value using show-variable.

If you specify a buffer-specific or window-specific variable, Epsilon uses the numeric argument to determine whether to set the value for the current buffer or window (zero numeric argument), the default value (1), or both (2). The value 3 also sets all it for all non-system buffers and windows, and 4 includes system ones too. If you provide no numeric argument, Epsilon asks.

As with most prompts for a numeric value, you can enter the value in hexadecimal, octal or binary as 0x2A, 0o52, or 0b101010, respectively, or write an integer expression using the usual arithmetic operators +, -, *, / and so forth.
