Epsilon User's Manual and Reference >
Command Reference >
This command prompts for the name of a variable and a new value for
that variable. This command cannot set variables with complicated
types involving structures or pointers. After setting the variable,
Epsilon shows the new value using show-variable.
If you specify a buffer-specific or window-specific variable, Epsilon
uses the numeric argument to determine whether to set the value for
the current buffer or window (zero numeric argument), the default
1), or both (
2). The value
3 also sets all it for
all non-system buffers and windows, and
4 includes system ones
too. If you provide no numeric argument, Epsilon asks.
As with most prompts for a numeric value, you can enter the value in
hexadecimal, octal or binary as 0x2A, 0o52, or 0b101010, respectively,
or write an integer expression using the usual arithmetic operators
/ and so forth.
