[Pythonmac-SIG] Line endings and readline()

If you can get to the files before they are read (e.g. a human types
them in, etc.) on the Linux box, take them into BBEdit (the lite
version, of course, unless you happen to have paid for the full
thing) and just save the file with different line endings (you can
choose from Mac, DOS, and Unix). Unfortunately, BBEdit is not
scriptable, so if automation is key then the previously mentioned
solutions will probably be best.
