You are entitled to choose binary mode, which will leave the files as they
are on Unix, which is less confusing to me, and works fine with gnu compilers
(and many others) under cygwin. That's with \n (lf) line separators. Mac
files are the ones with just \r (cr) separators. The PFE editor, for one,
gives you the choice whether to save a file with \r\n separators, or just \n.
