I must admit that I stopped thinking about the CR/LF issue shortly
after starting to use the free PFE (Programmer's File Editor) from
Alan Philips on my PC's. Handles DOS vs UNIX text files nicely.

See for details, if unknown.

As long as the PC filesystem does not indicate text/binary attributes
(which my primary Operating System MPE/iX does), it seems to me that
all on-the-fly conversions are somewhat tricky and potentially risky.
