Specify Epsilon's line translation scheme.
The operating system uses the sequence of characters Return Newline to
indicate the end of a line. Epsilon normally changes this sequence to
a single Newline when it reads in a file (by removing all the Return
characters). When it writes a file, it adds a Return before each
Epsilon automatically selects one of several other translation types
when appropriate, based on the contents of the file you edit (regular
text, binary, Unix, or Macintosh). You can explicitly override this if
Epsilon guesses wrong by providing a numeric argument to a file
reading command like find-file. Epsilon will then prompt for which
translation scheme to use.
This command sets the desired translation method for the current
buffer. It prompts for the desired type of translation, and makes
future file reads and writes in this buffer use that translation.
Epsilon will display "Binary", "Unix", "DOS", or "Mac" in the
mode line to indicate any special translation in effect.
