To force a file to be formatted as a Unix text file, simply enter "C-x RET f
undecided-unix RET". To have it formatted as a DOS text file use undecided-dos
instead of undecided-unix.

You did not say if these files are ones that are created or are existing files.
Although I have not edited files on a system running Solaris lately I don't
believe that has much bearing on the situation. I have observed that when I
create files on a UNIX system with Emacs running on Windows the files are
created as DOS files, which will have the ^M characters in them. I am sure
that there is a way to force Emacs to write them as UNIX style buffers, but I
do not know what it is and could not find it in a quick scan of the Emacs lisp

thr ough ftp
I am using Emacs 21.2 on a Windows 2000 Laptop.
Accessing Solaris 2.6 or Solaris 8 UNIX remote files with it and editing them
often generates ^M characters at the end of each lines of the file.
Can you please tell me if there is an option of ftp to use to specify ASCII
file transfer? Do you believe that the problem might come from other issue?
Thank you very much for your help.
