Why do you want to do this?  Emacs handles different file encodings
automatically (the line end convention is part of the coding system).
Normally you don't need to do such things unless your files are garbled
wrt encoding.

If you always open files with the correct encoding - if Emacs guesses
the wrong encoding, you can force the right one:

   (info "(emacs) Specify Coding")

- then you don't ever need to perform any replacements in your files.


Michael.
