The attached patch should change the default EOL to LF for Mac.
But I don't have a Mac to check if it actually works.

Do we currently detect the line endings in the file and try to match the
usage?  If not, should we?  How difficult would it be?

I believe such a check is already done in file_editor_tab::detect_eol_mode.

Now, if Windows would just abandon CRLF in favor of LF only...

I hear you. And UTF-8 as a working encoding. Or better yet the default...


Markus, the patch looks good. However, I can't test it either.


I tested the patch on macOS 10.13.6 and it looks good. After blowing away my
~/.config/octave to get a clean slate, it defaulted to using Unix (LF) as the line ending format.
