It depends on what you mean by correctly.  The default behavior IS correct
in my opinion, as it is identical to Linux behavior.  But re-read the
release announcement for alternative ways to explicitly request that bash
ignore carriage returns, such as 'shopt -s igncr'.


Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
