IIRC "\n" is supposed to work correctly on all OSes.

Perl will do what you mean.

    Understood LanX, on Windows, $/ is set to \r\n by default. I've found that on Windows, you can strip \r and be left with an \n (which is expected). I'm curious to know how, where and why this is compiled in. What's the trigger, and are there other *common* possibilities other than \r\n and \n.

      No its not!

      Read the linked post, the IO layer does the translation.

      Mac OS <10 had only "\r".
