At least half the entries (probably not that much but it sure seems like it
could be more) in the archives discuss this. When switching between binary and
text mode default processing, you need to modify all text files containing \r\n
(DOS STYLE) line endings to \n (UNIX STYLE) line endings. The downfall of this
is that older versions of NOTEPAD won't display the file properly. However,
the benefits will outway this one negative.
