find-oem-file

Read a file that uses the DOS character set.

Windows programs typically use a different character set than do DOS programs. The DOS character set is known as the DOS/OEM character set, and includes various line drawing characters and miscellaneous characters not in the Windows/ANSI set. The Windows/ANSI character set includes many accented characters not in the DOS/OEM character set. Epsilon for Windows uses the Windows/ANSI character set (with most fonts).

The find-oem-file command reads a file using the DOS/OEM character set, translating it into the Windows/ANSI character set, and arranges things so when you save the file, the reverse translation automatically occurs. This command is only available in Epsilon for Windows. See the default-character-set variable.
