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 Newline character.

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.
