I am trying out xyling, and am getting a persistent error:

> ! Missing number, treated as zero.
> <to be read again>
>                    $
> l.229 {\catcode`\^^M
>                     =\active%

I understand that the "Missing number" prompt usually pears when a 
command fails to find a numerical argument, but I get this when I 
include the xyling package declaration in my document 
(\usepackage{xyling}, without so much as including one command from the 
package. I have made sure that I have xypic installed, just in case 
there is a dependency involved.

There error looks like it's associated with the following line (229) in 


The "^M" sequence looks like a macintosh line-break symbol. Could this 
be part of the problem?

thank you,
