Designed for programmers, Epsilon is a comprehensive code editor that comes loaded with rich features to please most types of users. It supports file query replace, regex replace, bookmarks, tags, and buffer sorting, among others.
Advanced code editor with a user-friendly interface
Wrapped up in a user-friendly interface with a minimalistic appearance, Epsilon lets you work with C, Perl, batch, shell, text, HTML, XML, PHP, Visual Basic, Python, TeX, Java, INI, and other types of files.
It's possible to capitalize, uppercase, lowercase or transpose words, fill paragraphs, indent a region, insert characters with ASCII code, search forward or backward for keywords within the code, as well as replace queries, file queries, strings, and regex.
Manage and compare code, set hotkeys
Epsilon also lets you keep or delete matching lines, compile the code and view errors, create tags and bookmarks to identify certain blocks of code easier, jump to a specific line, compare the code of two open windows and find out the differences, as well as compare the current version to a previous one.
Moreover, you can sort the buffer or region, run the last macro, repeat the last command, set variables, assign keyboard shortcuts to any command, load bytecode files, show line wrapping, change the font and colors, show spaces, toggle the toolbar and menu bar, and so on.
Evaluation and conclusion
We haven't come across any stability issues in our tests, thanks to the fact that the software utility didn't hang, crash or prompt error messages. Unsurprisingly, it had minimal impact on the overall performance of the machine, using low CPU and RAM.
The features require a bit of studying to get the hang of Epsilon. Luckily, there is a help manual available online. Too bad that the tool hasn't been update for a long time. Otherwise, it comes bundled with a lot of advanced code editing options for programmers.
