Well, LaTeX uses TeX, and Frank brought up the issue of suitable TeX
successors, and in that context we started to discuss some TeX internals.
-- So that is related to the LaTeX group.

But I have no idea how the newlines comments by Rainer Schoepf, Robin
Fairbairns and others fit into it. -- It would have been good to hear a
reply from Rainer instead of the others. He described the easy way, known
everyone who ever wrote a computer program, to merely open text files and
let the OS/library make the translations as though it was the only one way,
which BTW does not work under MacOS, unless you also translate UNIX files
into MacOS standard or do some other tweaking, which is a bother.
