If executed during another command, help simply pops up the
description of that command. Otherwise, you press another key to
specify one of the following options:
out this message.
- runs describe-key, which asks for the key, then gives full
help on the command bound to that key.
- runs describe-command, which asks for the command name, then
gives full help on that command, along with its bindings.
- runs describe-variable, which asks for the variable name,
then shows the full help on that variable.
- runs the info command, which starts Info mode. Info mode lets
you read the entire Epsilon manual, as well as any other documentation
you may have in Info format.
- runs the info-goto-epsilon-command command, which
prompts for the name of an Epsilon command, then displays an Info page
from Epsilon's online manual that describes the command.
- runs the info-goto-epsilon-key command, which prompts
for a key, then displays an Info page from Epsilon's online manual
that describes the command it runs.

prompts for an Epsilon variable's name, then displays an Info page
from Epsilon's online manual that describes that variable.

browser. It prompts for a topic, which can be a command or variable
name, or any other text. (The browser will try to find an exact match
for what you type; if not, it will search for web pages containing
that word.) When you're looking at Epsilon's manual in Info mode,
using one of the previous commands, this command will default to
showing the same topic in a browser.

Epsilon for Windows versions prior to Windows Vista.

last 60 keystrokes you typed.

version number and similar information.
