------- Additional Comments From crossley@apache.org  2006-05-17 01:55 -------
I tried to scour the net and managed to find one useful reference. Of course my
search was not exhaustive and i am not really a Mac developer so do not know how
to find authoritative references.

http://developer.apple.com/technotes/tn2002/tn2065.html
See "What are the rules for line endings?"
They also describe the problems that will be encountered if UNIX-style line
endings are not used, e.g. 'grep' returns the whole file content as a "matching
line".

I presume when they say "Mac-style" they mean MacOs prior to "Mac OS X".

We have implemented a workaround by detecting 'os family="unix"' as per my
Comment #4, and specifically using fixcrlf/@eol=unix and otherwise using fixcrlf
with no @eol value.

p.s. The initial issue Description should say: "UNIX LF" and the second sentence
should be ignored. See Comment #5.
p.p.s. You might want to change the issue Summary.
