SAPPAD - The Very Easy and Free SAP Texteditor - can Handle Unix (LF) and Windows (CR/LF) Files
SAP Kernel Programs
sappad.exe in a SAP System
SAPPAD can be used to edit all files on windows. They can be CR/LF terminated as used to on windows or even only LF terminated as used to in Unix. SAP often uses the pure LF termination where Windows often has problems with. Especially notepad is not able to cope with LF only files. Even wordpad is not really good on that. It can read them, but when updating them it inserts CR/LF which normally crashes these files.
