I can only guess, but I bet that you're using vim or any other editor
which can handle both.  Since Python has universal newline support, it
can also read both.  Seems that you're lucky that it's Python .....

You might use the od -c on Linux and Mac to check which files were
created on Win and which on LF OSes ... supposed that I'm right at

Would be a good check of my assumptions.
