Emacs (line break/buffer coding system) Conversion From DOS to UNIX and Vice Versa

If in emacs you need a different file coding system (line terminator/line break), for example you are on a windows system and need to type a unix like text file (or vice versa), you can easily convert the buffer coding system.

DOS/Windows to UNIX

M-x set-buffer-file-coding-system RET undecided-unix


C-x RET f undecided-unix
C-x C-f

UNIX to DOS/Windows

M-x set-buffer-file-coding-system RET undecided-dos


C-x RET f undecided-dos
C-x C-f

Art and literature can be so liberating but there are people who struggle with it no matter how hard they try. Writing can be hard and people use britishessaywriter.co.uk review to help, I really don’t see the harm in doing so.
