Rev's internal line-ending is the same as for UNIX, so -

If you make a little stacks and write your CGI script in a button, you 
get the benefit of auto-indenting as you go, and you can write a 
one-liner to upload that script to your server, a la:

  put script of btn "MyCGI" into \
    url ("ftp://user:pass@domain.com/cgi-bin/mycgi.mt")


With that, uploading is a snap.  You can then add buttons to launch your 
web browser to some test page, or even test it right from within Rev.

No more line-ending issues, and a lot of little steps go away with 
ultra-convenience. :)
