scp-windows-sftp-command: preference variable

Default value: "%w sftp"

When Epsilon for Windows constructs a command line to perform some scp operation, it substitutes the value of this variable for any %c sequence in the command line template.

Any %w in the setting will be replaced by an invocation of an appropriate helper program when running on a system with Cygwin installed (or with nothing if Cygwin is not installed). (The helper program instructs any programs that follow on the command line to behave as if running interactively, when sending output or prompting for user input. In particular, this makes it prompt for a password or passphrase.)

Any %x in the setting will be replaced with the name of the directory containing Epsilon's executable; any %X will be replaced by the 8.3 version of that directory name. The default setting runs Cygwin's sftp program using a small helper program that makes it prompt for a passphrase or password in a way that Epsilon can intercept. Also see the scp-unix-sftp-command variable.
