It depends on what you are doing.  Do those files need to be in text
mode or can you read and write them in binary mode (even if they will
contain text, if viewed from a Unix system)?

Most of the time, I try to open and write the files in binary mode so
that the CR+LF crazry stuff does not get in the way.  
And when I have to, I only issue CR on writing, but I accept CR+LF
in reading mode IF reading text files.

And I usually avoid editing programs under win32 :-)
