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
ftp://example.com/filename, Epsilon will check to see if a
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.)
