@defvar buffer-file-coding-system
This buffer-local variable records the coding system that was used to visit
the current buffer. It is used for saving the buffer, and for writing part
of the buffer with @code{write-region}. If the text to be written
cannot be safely encoded using the coding system specified by this
variable, these operations select an alternative encoding by calling
the function @code{select-safe-coding-system} (@pxref{User-Chosen
Coding Systems}). If selecting a different encoding requires to ask
the user to specify a coding system, @code{buffer-file-coding-system}
is updated to the newly selected coding system.
