I finally studied the Squeak file system closely enough to follow the class
interaction, and found I needed to change the FileStream
class>>#concreteStream method to return CrLfFileStream instead of the
StandardFileStream class to make it the default. That and installing the
glass port hole in my belly button so I could see what I was doing when I
had my head up my . . ., ah, er, in the clouds finally got me a fully
functioning Squeak platform specific line term.
I'm using a version with the following header:
'From Squeak 1.2 of June 29, 1997 on 10 July 1997 at 1:31:26 pm'
and it seems to work pleasingly well.
Thanks for the extended help.
