gawk: MSYS

 
 B.3.1.5 Using 'gawk' In The MSYS Environment
 ............................................
 
 In the MSYS environment under MS-Windows, 'gawk' automatically uses
 binary mode for reading and writing files.  Thus, there is no need to
 use the 'BINMODE' variable.
 
    This can cause problems with other Unix-like components that have
 been ported to MS-Windows that expect 'gawk' to do automatic translation
 of '"\r\n"', because it won't.
