[Ifeffit] Using FEFF8 with Artemis

Hi Bruce,

Thnks--your response helped me track down the nature of the problem. 
It turns out that if I "wash" the files.dat and paths.dat files by 
opening them on a pc and then saving them again, Artemis then does a 
little better, allowing me to read in path files that have themselves 
been washed. I suspect if I washed every text file in the directory, 
it might work smoothly (maybe I'll try running a calculation with 
only a handful of paths and doing that). The interesting thing to me 
is that the behavior is indeed platform-independent...Artemis on the 
Mac apparently needs the Feff files to have the pc end-of-line termination. :)

Does anyone out there have a simple way to btach convert a whole 
bunch of files from Mac CR line breaks to pc CR/LF line breaks? I'm 
not part of the linux or unix worlds, but can use either Windows XP 
or OS X methods.
