[tlug] line ending in XEmacs

Very basic question, I'm sure, but I can't find the answer in the FAQ
or the manual.

I recently had to edit a text file with MS-DOS line endings in XEmacs, and was
a bit disappointed to see that XEmacs doesn't seem to auto-detect line
endings. I've used Mule versions that do detect line endings, so I'm sure
I just need to set a variable or something, but which one?

As for the actual file, I ended up stripping \r and restoring it afterwards
with perl one-liners. Inelegant, yes, but I was in a big hurry.
