Subject RE: DO NOT REPLY [Bug 39585] - Core task Condition/Os does not detect "Mac OS X"
Date Wed, 17 May 2006 15:18:18 GMT
The only other reference I found at apple.com was this:

http://developer.apple.com/documentation/MacOSX/Conceptual/BPFileSystem/
Articles/FileSystemGuidelines.html

It seems pretty explicit though: "Mac OS X uses the \n character by
itself to represent the end of a line." They do go on to say that when
reading files, however, applications should support \n, \r, and \n\r to
promote interoperability.
