There are three conventions:
- Unix
- Macintosh

On Unix and Mac there are conversion tools. I guess
there are such tools for Windows too.

gcc usually accepts the DOS convention (with
many warnings using -pedantic), but here it's
a special case where it causes an error.

I don't know about Windows compilers accepting Unix
conventions. The only Mac compiler (ie CodeWarrior)
certainly accepts unconverted Unix files.
