external-format-for-saved-files

Arguments: cg-configuration

This configuration option determines the character encoding that will be used by the function save-file for saving the text that's in a text-edit-pane to a file. This applies only on the Windows platform, because GTk always uses the UTF8 format.

This option affects the IDE's source code editor because it calls save-file whenever it saves a file.

This option is generally used only when saving a text-edit-pane's text to file for the first time, rather than when re-saving a file that was loaded and edited. Specifically, when load-file is called to load text into a text-edit-pane, the external format that was used for reading the file is stored as the external-format-for-save property of the text-edit-pane, and save-file will later use that same external format to update the file. The options below will be used only if the external-format-for-save property is nil (either because no file was loaded or because you've set that property back to nil), or if this option value is :ask-always.

Here are the valid values for this option. Some of these are the same as valid stream-external-format values.

See also automatic-font-changing and excl:*use-unicode-winapi-for-cg*. The configuration option write-bom-to-utf8-files controls whether save-file will write UTF8 byte order marker (BOM) bytes at the beginning of the file, if the file is being saved in UTF8 format.

See also load-utf8-if-no-bom and compile-files-as-utf8.
