fallback-remote-translation-type: preference variable

Default value: 5

When you read a file that uses URL syntax, one that starts with scp:// or ftp://, and Epsilon can't autodetect its line ending type, it consults this variable to determine what kind of line translation to perform. Zero indicates binary, 1 indicates DOS/Windows, 2 indicates Unix, 3 indicates Macintosh, and 5, the default, makes Epsilon for Windows assume Windows and Epsilon for Unix assume Unix.

This variable determines the translation type for new files, or files too short to permit autodetection. For most files, Epsilon will still use auto-detection. If you want to force a particular translation type for all files, bypassing auto-detection, set the force-remote-translation-type variable instead.

Before checking this variable, Epsilon looks for a host-specific variable. For instance, if you read a file named, Epsilon will check to see if a variable named fallback-remote-translation-type-example-com exists. If so, it will use that variable instead of this one. (Epsilon makes the variable name from the host name by replacing each character that isn't alphanumeric with a hyphen, then putting fallback-remote-translation-type- before it.)
