A special class of coding systems, collectively known as
@dfn{codepages}, is designed to support text encoded by MS-Windows and
MS-DOS software. To use any of these systems, you need to create it
with @kbd{M-x codepage-setup}. @xref{MS-DOS and MULE}. After
creating the coding system for the codepage, you can use it as any
other coding system. For example, to visit a file encoded in codepage
850, type @kbd{C-x @key{RET} c cp850 @key{RET} C-x C-f @var{filename}
@key{RET}}.
MS-DOS software. The names of these coding systems are
@code{cp@var{nnnn}}, where @var{nnnn} is a 3- or 4-digit number of the
codepage. You can use these encodings just like any other coding
system; for example, to visit a file encoded in codepage 850, type
@kbd{C-x @key{RET} c cp850 @key{RET} C-x C-f @var{filename}
@key{RET}}@footnote{
In the MS-DOS port of Emacs, you need to create a @code{cp@var{nnn}}
coding system with @kbd{M-x codepage-setup}, before you can use it.

In addition to converting various representations of non-@acronym{ASCII}
characters, a coding system can perform end-of-line conversion. Emacs
