    Re:   READLINE

    When using READLINE to read a file, if the last line does not contain
    a carriage-return, that line is not read.  Clearly either a
    carriage-return or end-of-file should work as a line terminator.
It is not "clear" that it should. It is only your belief that it should.
It is the belief of the language spec, however, that it should not. Maclisp
thinks a line should be ended with a newline character. It might be that
the language spec should be changed sometime, but in any case, the observed
behavior is not a bug.
