Tell that to the OS vendors. ;)
I think Rev does a fair job of providing an even mix of ease of use with
If you want line endings converted, either open the file as text or use
"file" in a URL (e.g. "file:myfile.txt"). This will cause Rev to
automatically convert the different line endings used by Windows and Mac
to the Unix convention it uses internally.
If you want to preserve the exact format as it is on disk, then open the
file as binary or use "binfile" in a URL (e.g., "binfile:myfile.txt").
You can have it both ways, and usually in one line.
