Variable Reference >
uncompress-files: preference variable
Default value: 3
If this variable is
1, reading a file with a .gz extension will
uncompress it and display the uncompressed version. If this variable
2, Epsilon will do the same for files with a .bz2 extension. A
3 does both, and
0 does neither.
This feature runs the standard utility programs
gzip (for .gz) and
bzip2 (for .bz2); you'll need to install them if they're not
already installed. For Windows, the programs provided by the Cygwin
environment will work fine.
