File Types; how do I interchange between UNIX, Windows and DOS files ??
MicroEmacs '06 facilitates the editing of the standard file types on all platforms. All files retain their line ending type through edits. i.e. if a DOS file is edited on a UNIX system, the file is still written as a DOS file. When new files are created, they are created with the standard attributes of the host O/S.
The line ending of the file may be modified from the menu
file -> attributes
This brings up a dialog that allows the file type and attributes to be modified.
Note that the only ending that is NOT preserved are files whose lines end in <CR>'s only. The line format is correctly interpreted on reading, but is not retained on the write.
