Text line endings
This topic likely won't affect users unless they are doing multi-line edit scripting or using the Explode feature.
Not all line breaks are equal. 2 different characters get used for line endings:
To muddy the waters, different OSs have used different line end encodings:
Text generated in Tinderbox (except perhaps very early versions running pre-OS X) uses the Unix/OS X style line offered style of line end, \n.
When including a line end as part of an Explode delimiter, \r and r generally have the same effect so using \n as a 'default' is probably good working practice.
However, depending on the source of text brought into Tinderbox, e.g. a text file dragged in for exploding, the designator used for line end may have to be adjusted.
