    Default Handling mac text format files - support?

    I am trying to modify the sdi example (on my way to my own app) to accetpt mac, dos and unix text file formats.
    Dos and unix are ok, but a chunk of text in read from a mac text file becomes one long string, difficult to parse.
    Is there any QTextStream (or similar) function to handle this?

    Text line separators:
    unix = "\n"
    dos = "\r\n"
    mac = "\r"

    It seems "\r" is simply ignored by QTextStream.

    I know Mac text format files are a dying spieces, but I don't want my app to crasch if it encounters one.
