>Btw, the original Info in TX210BN.ZIP showed ^M thus generated as a Newline
>(i.e., the line was broken in the middle), and Makeinfo produces ^ZZ and
>^MM for these (i.e., the characters Z and M are written after their Ctrl-
>counterparts).  Seems like bug to me.

I sent patches to RMS that fixes this.  In addition, the patches included an
msdos command line switch that generated info files that are more suitable
under MSDOS.  That is, split files were much smaller (25K / file) and the
file name extension went like `.1in, .2in, ....' instead of `.info-1,
.info-2, etc.....'

I do not know whether or not these patches made it into the distribution.
