	Indeed, the lossage was coming from FORMAT.  However, the bug
    is LISP's.  Lisp changes <cr> into <cr><lf> everywhere except at the
    end of the file.  I have changed FORMAT to explicitly call TERPRI
    rather than output 15 octal repeatedly;  when this gets fixed in LISP
    (I was under the impression this got fixed long ago, because i remember
    complaining about it) then format can be channged back to save some
Regardless of any lisp inconsitencies, you should use TERPRI.  I have
been hassled upon ocasion by several other persons about error msgs 
having imbedded "^M"s rather than calling TERPRI, for random-J operating
system does, or needs, something different at end-of-line  (where "J" varies 
over SAIL and some others.)
