Stop TPIPE /EOL removing bad EOLs (and TPIPE changine EOLs)?

May 20, 2008
Syracuse, NY, USA
Fom the help, regarding TPIPE's /EOL's 5th parameter:

Remove (optional) - Whether to remove bad EOLs (default 1)

If I understand that correctly, then it doesn't seem to be working. I have this file (with a bare LF in it).

v:\> type/x 12.txt
0000 0000 31 61 62 63 0a 64 65 66  32                       1abc.def2

Below, TPIPE /EOF removes that bare LF regardless of the value of it's 5th parameter.

v:\> tpipe /input=12.txt /output=12.txt.bak /eol=2,0,0,0,0

v:\> type/x 12.txt.bak
0000 0000 31 61 62 63 64 65 66 32                           1abcdef2

v:\> tpipe /input=12.txt /output=12.txt.bak /eol=2,0,0,0,1

v:\> type/x 12.txt.bak
0000 0000 31 61 62 63 64 65 66 32                           1abcdef2

And if I don't even use /EOL, TPIPE will (apparently) change bad EOLs.

v:\> type/x 12.txt
0000 0000 31 61 62 63 0a 64 65 66  32                       1abc.def2

v:\> tpipe /input=12.txt /output=12.txt.bak /simple=6

v:\> type/x 12.txt.bak
0000 0000 31 61 62 63 0d 0a 64 65  66 32                    1abc..def2

I don't like TPIPE doing something I didn't ask it to do.
Hey @vefatica, you are correct about the auto change of EOL, as it is indicated in the log file.
