I have a file in my C: drive on Windows named MSDELog.log and from opening the file with a hex editor I can see that there is a null character after each character. But there is no indicator at the start of the file saying unicode or whatever the encoding is.
If I open this file with the Windows notepad it seems to recognise it and opens correctly.
If I open the file in emacs I see the text but every other character is ^@ - I realise this indicates a null character.
If I hit m-x revert-buffer-with-coding-system and try utf-8 there is no change in the view. If I select utf-16 then I see a load of what looks like Chinese characters.
How do I view this file in emacs?
