How do you use Sepia? The documentation is really scarce... Is it usable from within some other editor ?

    Sorry, but it's only an Emacs extension. Given that you'll probably have to learn a half-dozen or more language in your career, it behooves you to learn a general-purpose editor. Emacs is one such.

      Emacs is, so far as I'm aware, the only really truly general-purpose editor.

      Be that as it may, I tend to agree with wazoox that from the POD it is not obvious how to actually use this Sepia, or even what facilities it provides beyond those of cperl-mode and eshell.

      We're working on a six-year set of freely redistributable Vacation Bible School materials.
      I know the basics of emacs, but I prefer first nedit, and second vim. However, I'd still like to know : how do you use Sepia from within emacs?
        The README has some information, but basically, you need to put *.el from the distribution in emacs' load-path, then do
        M-x load-library RET sepia RET M-x sepia-init RET M-x sepia-rebuild RET
        As for what it does beyond eshell and cperl-mode, the main features are tab-completion of functions and variables, an interactive prompt, and cross-referencing (to find definitions, callers, callees, etc.).
