set-encoding

Make Epsilon use a different encoding.

When Epsilon reads or writes a file that uses Unicode characters, it uses an encoding such as UTF-8 or UTF-16 to represent the file on disk. This command sets the encoding Epsilon will use from now on for the current buffer. Press "?" to see a list of known encodings.

Some encodings are special. The "raw" encoding makes Epsilon read a file without doing any conversion. The "auto-detect" encoding makes Epsilon determine the encoding as it reads the file, by looking for a signature (byte order mark). Some encodings like UTF-8 have "-No-Sig" variants that omit the signature when writing.

To read a file into a new buffer using specific encoding, use a numeric prefix argument with a file-reading command like find-file.
