Hey-Hey-Hey! ;-) let's not throw thrash all over the place ;-)
Very Quick Correction: The Amiga is more like *IX/*UX than you think;
it uses plain LF for line endings.
The "posix emulation layer" (=geekgadgets) for the Amiga had no trouble
whatsoever with line endings.
I believe the Mac is the only system that has (had? as of latest versions)
CR-only line endings.
