- Subject: mixed textfile-mode?
i thought about introducing a "mixed" textmode - that means no
converting when writing (this will result in normal UNIX lineendings)
but CRLF to LF conversion when reading (which maked windows-files
acceptable - UNIX lineendings would be accepted too, because an LF
doesn't have to ber converted).
there is just one case i worry about:
writing CRLF with conversation will result in CRCRLF and will be read as
in the mixed mode CRLF would be written as CRLF, but read as LF.
perhaps writing CRCRLF in this case would be a clever idea.
