Viewing and Editing Project Properties
To view and edit the properties for a project:

Text file encoding
Encoding options for text file:
Inherited from container: Encoding value is based on the local system setting. This option is selected by default.
Other: Select another encoding value instead of the value inherited from the container if the text files use a different encoding scheme (for example, they originated from an external source).
Store the encoding of derived sources separately: Store encoding settings of derived resources in a separate preferences file. Usually the encodings for all files in each project are stored in one preferences file. If you are using a version control system and the preferences file is shared, the encodings for all resources are shared along with it.
Using this option, allows you to avoid sharing encoding information for derived files, which are not typically shared in a version control system.
New text file line delimiter
Line delimiter for a new text files:
Inherited from container: Line delimiter value is based on the local system setting. This option is selected by default.
Other: Select the operating system that applies to your development or deployment platform, from where the line delimiter value will be used instead of the value inherited from the container.
