:: Neither Windows nor DOS can handle a long file name that ends in the     ::
:: carraige return character. It refuses to read or write to them. Here is  ::
:: a brief overview of the Carraige Return Character...                     ::
::                                                                          ::
:: ASCII Value: CR                                                          ::
:: Terminal Value: Ctrl+M                                                   ::
:: Hex Value: 0D                                                            ::
::                                                                          ::
:: So if you make a nice little C++ proggy to create 200 meg files on       ::
:: some-ones HD with names like "slugpigyak" they are pretty much phuct.    ::
::                                                                          ::
:: Other ASCII characters which Windoze cannot handle are Alt+254 and       ::
:: Alt+255 - If you created a directory with these ASCII characters Windoze ::
:: would not allow any attempts to read or write to that directory because  ::
:: it "does not exist" - When you want to get back in, just rename the      ::
:: directory under DOS with the right ASCII sequence. ;-)                   ::
::                                                                          ::
