People have mentioned C-s before.  It's not the same as vi's f
command, but maybe good enough.

I think this doesn't exist in Emacs.  Emacs has the equivalent of
"w", but no equivalent of "W".  Maybe C-M-f comes close: whereas M-f
would stop at the dash in foo-bar, C-M-f would not.  (M-f is the
Emacs equivalent of vi's "w".)

Emacs automatically recognizes the EOL convention of files it reads.
So, normally, C-x C-f is enough.  After that, saving with C-x C-s
preserves the EOL convention.
