|Complete this word by scanning the buffer. ||F3, Ctrl-<Up>|
This command scans the buffer before point, and copies the previous
word to the location at point. If you type the key again, it pulls in
the word before that, etc. Whenever Epsilon pulls in a word, it
replaces any previously pulled-in word. If you like the word that has
been pulled in, you do not need to do anything special to accept
it-Epsilon resumes normal editing when you type any key except for the
few special keys reserved by this command. Type Ctrl-g to erase the
pulled-in word and abort this command.
If a portion of a word immediately precedes point, that subword
becomes a filter for pulled-in words. For example, suppose you start
to type a word that begins
WM, then you notice that the word
WM_QUERYENDSESSION appears a few lines above. Just type Ctrl-<Up>
and Epsilon fills in the rest of this word.
