in thread Quick and portable way to determine line-ending string?

If the file contains 0x0d characters then they are characters which are supposed to be part of the line seperator and will be caught by the code I wrote. While many unix tools will see the 0x0d as just another character, if you do infact have a file which has 0x0d 0x0a pairs, you probably want 0x0d 0x0a to be your line seperator. If you had mixed 0x0d 0x0a and just 0x0a line seperators then the code won't work but so long as it is consistent it should be fine.
