Old bug. Menitioned in the old documentation. Incredibly hairy code.

True. I never use it. I kind of philosophically disagree with it.

It was good that it worked at all :-)
There is also a NO_BACKUP #define. I don't guarantee what happens if you

I know. The very old code did this for a BSD system. But I have never
figured out how to do this portably on a more modern system. Mentioned
in the documentation.

That would be a nice feature.

Hmm. Could be added I guess.

OK. It never did, actually. Of course we don't have to do everything

If it were distributed with Cygwin I would certainly define LF_DEFAULT.
I wouldn't do it all on my own, but certainly if it's a condition.

OH! Thanks. Fixed.

I haven't touched those.
>-DSCROLLBYONE seems to work fine
OK. That was more thorough than I asked for ;-) But very helpful.
