No, STDIO is the standard C library as provided by Windows and it
knows about about the "b" flag to fopen. I plan to include a custom
stdio for other reasons but that won't help. A global flag indicating
that everyting is binary (i.e. a single LF for line endings) has other
problems: Configuration files might not work correclt anymore due to
the missing CR/LF to LF mapping. Thus the best solution is to use the
"b" flag for everything which is not a text file. One can get used to
this but yes, it is easy to miss.
Time for 1.2.25 ?
