default-translation-type: preference variable

Default value: 5

When you read an existing file, Epsilon consults this variable to determine what kind of line translation to perform. If 5 (FILETYPE_AUTO), Epsilon examines the file's contents and selects one of the following translations, setting the buffer's translation-type variable to the selected translation. If this variable is set to any other value, Epsilon uses the specified translation without examining the contents of the file.

A value of 0 (FILETYPE_BINARY) makes Epsilon do no line translation, 1 (FILETYPE_MSDOS) makes Epsilon strip <Return> characters when reading and insert them when writing, 2 (FILETYPE_UNIX) makes Epsilon do no line translation, but indicates that the file contains text, 3 (FILETYPE_MAC) makes Epsilon replace <Return> characters with <Newline> characters when reading, and replace <Newline> characters with <Return> characters when writing.

For remote files (those that use URL syntax), Epsilon uses the force-remote-translation-type variable instead. Also see new-buffer-translation-type to change the translation rules for newly-created files and buffers.
