No, I do not use APR_BINARY here.

Besides, APR_BINARY does not influence anything as can be seen from the  

As I understand, in APR there is only one binary mode.

Then I do not understand why apr_file_open_std* and  
apr_file_open_flags_std* functions are implemented in APR. Because the  
corresponding streams should work in text mode only, which is not the case  
in Windows and OS/2. On the other hand I need these functions since I use  
poll functions with std* streams.
