Dos/Unix? line termination
I'm sorry, I don't know where to ask this question.
When I edit a page on my usemod based Wiki in Mozilla, then in Emacs/W3,
I note that all the endlines have the ^M ending symptomatic of Dos/style
line termination. Is this usemod's fault, or Mozilla? Can I fix this?
Thanks. --AlainPicard? (mailto:email@example.com)
- I think it's actually a bug in W3. Typically, network protocols
specify that you "should" use <cr><lf> as the line terminator, but
of course, a lot of Unix applications use just <lf>, and (now I'm
speculating here) presumably the Emacs/W3 guys simply never thought
much of this. But if Wiki could use just line feeds instead of CRLF:s,
I think no clients would have any problem with that, either. And the
change should be technically very very simple. -- era
