This is a bummer. I really liked the simplified documentation..

Looks like it works to me. I change the cr= attribute to eol="crlf" or
eol="lf". The cr attr was depricated.

Thanks for this. One thing off my list already. I'm cookin' with gas.

Yes, this is the kind of thing I'll be trying to normalize. I already
added the jcifs.util.Encdec class for this purpose.

On a related note, I like your Buffer.java technique in Jarapac and the
RAP code. I will look at exploring that closer but I didn't put it on the
list because it might be a little too pervasive.
