scp-client-style: preference variable
Default value: 0
By default, Epsilon runs the sftp program to perform all scp
operations. To access very old ssh servers, it can instead use the
epsilon-xfer-helper program over a secure link, if you
first set things up. Set this variable to
0x1 to make Epsilon
issue commands for the helper program, not sftp. With this setting,
Epsilon will run a separate
scp program each it has to copy a
If you have trouble viewing dired listings, you may have an older
version of the sftp program; set this variable to
0x2 to have
Epsilon use old-style sftp commands.
When you type an scp:// URL that doesn't end in a / character, Epsilon
first checks to see if it's a directory. You can have Epsilon skip
this check by setting the
0x8 bit. With this option, whenever you
type a directory name, you must either end it with a / character to
indicate it's a directory, or use the dired command instead of one
of the other file-reading commands.
