The problem is more general than TeXShop. The data files that my OS9
programs wrote now cannot be plotted by unix gnuplot locally or after
being ftp'd to a remote machine because they are full of ^M, which is
a Mac line ending. I think pre-OSX it was clear that a mac was a mac
and the control characters got translated, but now mac is also unix
so.....??  The BBEdit 'save as' dialog includes the option of mac or
unix, and i've been dragging the files onto BB and saving as unix. I
really wish BBEdit could somehow handle the text editing part of

I'm still not sure how I'm going to handle graphics. I've always done
TeX the user-unfriendly way on unix making .ps or .eps graphics with
gnuplot. I can distill .ps to .pdf but that's one more step. a cocoa
ploting app wd make .pdf but some journals want .ps anyway.
