Any chance you're mixing OSes? I spent an ugly week learning about how
*NIX uses LF at the end of a line of text, Macs use CR, and Windows, of
course, uses CR LF. And moving perfectly (I thought) transportable text
files blows up and breaks the EDI transfer you're sending to Kaiser
Permanente and now how to all those people get their health insurance?

Good working strategy, with one (now) obvious drawback ;)
