I'm not sure `set-buffer-file-coding-system' will have any effect on an already opened file though. I just tried this with a file which was created outside Emacs, and contained: $ cat -vte foo fooo^M$ $ Opening this file with `C-x C-f foo RET' and setting the buffer file coding system with `C-x RET f unix RET', marks the buffer as modified, but saving the file does not modify the contents of the file to use UNIX newlines only. If you really want to use Emacs for the conversion, you have to *explicitly* replace ^M characters, either with `M-x replace-string RET C-q C-m RET RET' or some either way. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
