it's prob'ly bcse i'm older than zeus, but it seems that i
once wrote a script or short c program that detected the
end-of-paragraph. maybe somewhere in atom. anyway, karl
vogel came to my rescue with a two-byte change to the
print $fh "$_";
line. appending "$/" resolves the problem.
print $fh "$_$/";
now i can point kttsd's reader at the entire [huge] file --
while i read along. or read each chapter individually. the
way i wrote them
