Has anybody looked at sfio ? ... http://www.research.att.com/sw/tools/sfio/
Did just now. Only runs on Unix boxes, so would be a heavyweight way to solve line-end problems across platforms that don't have any <wink>. Possible to run it on Windows, but only on top of the commercial UWIN Unix emulation package (http://www.research.att.com/sw/tools/uwin/). They didn't mention Macs at all. The papers should be worth reading for anyone intending to tackle this, though.
