Indeed. In fact, Internet protocols still require line terminations to
be \r\n. On Unix the compiler simply translates \n such that the
terminal does \r\n.
I am loathe to defend Microsloth, but they're quite correct here. As
usual, Apple did something different just to be different, and added no
I'd be happy if the world simply standardized on \r\n.
