Pick the appropriate mode for this buffer.
When you first load a file, Epsilon auto-detects the correct mode for
it, by examining the file's extension and sometimes the contents of
the file. This command makes Epsilon repeat that process, setting the
buffer to a different mode if appropriate. It can be handy after
you've temporarily switched to a different mode for any reason, or
after you've started creating a new file with no extension and have
now typed the first few lines, enough for Epsilon to auto-detect the
For instance, if you're creating a new file with no extension, there
might not be enough information for Epsilon to choose the right mode
at the start. Once you've typed the usual first line of a Perl,
PostScript, shell script, or similar file, then Epsilon should have
enough information to pick the right mode.
