I dont agree:
   I don't know on which OS file will be write or read, I have several places to 
generate and several to read files. And no user need to open this files myself 
without application.

  And second I don't understand why You don't want change it. I don't see any 
true reason to left it unchanged. Everybody, who want to control output must 
avoid WRITELN (I don't test READLN, but I use it very rare).  I want do decide, 
how function work, not OS.

Of course I can do it by hand, but I think that somebody help me (I must change 
  more than 1000 places in my program)
