++fruiture! Twice, if I could.

I can't believe how fortified using \r\n is in some minds when dealing with foreign sytems' line terminators. In the last few days, this is the fourth post on that topic... It seems as if I stumbled into a crusade against \r\n (which, across systems, ah.., isn't).

Brothers and Sisters, this is harmful! Oh well, I might overstate this, but this does spoil portability! It was Aristotle, who asked me to beat him to it, just a short while ago... ;)

In this case, if you ported local $/ = "\r\n" to an EBCDIC-US system you'd chomp on CR followed by chr(37) ('#' in EBCDIC)! You need to obey the origins encoding, and for DOS that means that line endings are \015\012 and not your systems' \r\n.

So long,
Flexx
