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
