Epsilon automatically enters GAMS mode when you read a file with an extension of .gms or .set. In addition, if you set the gams-files variable nonzero, it recognizes .inc, .map, and .dat extensions. Epsilon also uses GAMS mode for files with an unrecognized extension that start with a GAMS $title directive. The GAMS language is used for mathematical programming.

In GAMS mode, Epsilon does syntax highlighting, recognizing GAMS strings and comments. The GAMS language permits a file to define its own additional comment character sequences, besides the standard * and $ontext and $offtext, and Epsilon recognizes most common settings for these.

When the cursor is on a bracket or parenthesis, Epsilon will try to locate its matching bracket or parenthesis, and highlight them both. If the current character has no match, Epsilon will not highlight it. Set the variable auto-show-gams-delimiters to zero to disable this feature.

If you use the compile-buffer command to compile a GAMS file, Epsilon will automatically look for the .lst file produced by GAMS software and translate its format so that the commands next-error and previous-error work.
