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>.
But purely by chance I know that Matthias Neeracher, who has written the GUSI unix-emulation package that MacPython uses to do socket IO and select and such, is an SFIO fan, and there's all sorts of hooks in GUSI to allow use of SFIO. So I think that there's a good chance that sfio is okay for MacPython.
I've just dug out the 1991 usenix article, I'll read through it shortly. -- Jack Jansen | ++++ stop the execution of Mumia Abu-Jamal ++++ Jack.Jansen@oratrix.com | ++++ if you agree copy these lines to your sig ++++ www.oratrix.nl/~jack | see http://www.xs4all.nl/%7Etank/spg-l/sigaction.htm
