Depends what you mean by 'work'. On *nix, *all* read/write is binary
mode. On Win*, the *only* difference is conversion of \r\n to \n on
input and vice versa on output.

*All* files are string of binary digits. Notepad tries to interpret
any file as as extended-ASCII text file as best it can.

That is how Notepad displays what it cannot properly interpret.
