This small improvement could increase the popularity of Tcl/Tk under
Most of the time I work under UNIX but I also have Tcl/Tk for Windows
on my PC. And there are lots of people who use the Windows version
only; I wonder whether they can read all of the ASCII files included in
the distribution. The only text files in DOS format, i.e., having
CR/LF as line terminator, are Readme.txt, license.txt, and install.log.
The ASCII files located in the directories include and lib as well as
in their subdirectories are all in UNIX format, hence the standard
Windows editor notepad.exe cannot display them properly. And probably
not all Tcl/Tk users have a more intelligent editor, capable of
displaying also text files in UNIX format.
All ASCII files included in the Tcl/Tk for Windows distribution should
have DOS format.
This seems to be of dubious value, since all the Windows editors
that I know of, with the exception of Notepad, can read CR line
terminated docs without problem. This include WordPad.

This was moved to RFE as it doesn't actually interrupt any use
of running Tcl on Windows.
