Q60142: Configuring M.EXE to Epsilon Format
Article: Q60142 Product(s): See article Version(s): 7.00 | 7.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | SR# S900322-11 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 11-JUL-1990 This article describes the correct way to set up the Microsoft M Editor (M.EXE) to simulate the Epsilon editor environment. The Epsilon editor is a text editing utility published by Lugaru Software, which emulates EMACS-type editors running on larger computers. This article applies to Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) Version 7.00. In the BIN directory that Setup installs on the hard drive, there is a file called EPSILON.INI. This file contains the keystroke assignments necessary to reconfigure the M.EXE Editor. To get this field recognized, do one of the following: 1. Rename the file to TOOLS.INI. 2. Copy this file into your current TOOLS.INI file. Then, make sure that your DOS INIT variable is set to the directory that your TOOLS.INI file is located in; for example: SET INIT=D:\BC7\BIN At the top of the EPSILON.INI file is the clause [M MEP]. This clause tells the computer that the following commands should be issued when a program called M.EXE or a program called MEP.EXE is executed. If you have changed the name of your M Editor, this label should be changed to include the current name of the editor.
