Actually, Feff6 (and ifeffit) handle Unix and Windows line endings
just fine, but do have a harder time with Mac line-endings. I'm
not sure I know how to fix this: As far as I can tell it's at the
level of the fortran's read() statement. Sorry.
One thing that confuses me is that Feff6 *should* have reported a
Fatal Error: No absorbing atom (ipot=0) defined
which could have been used as a clue that something went wrong.
I don't know how artemis checks if a feff run went OK.

TextEdit can save file with Unix-style line endings, especially if
you set the default to using 'Plain text' in the Preferences menu.
BBedit is a popular and very good editor for Mac OS X.
