I'm in the unfamiliar position of having to be worried about
whether my Lua program will run properly not only on a Linux
system but on someone else's Windows or Macintosh.
The program is a text filter: it reads a text file line by line,
does something to the lines and writes it out. I do the
reading in using file:lines() which strips off end-of-line
and the writing out by
I suppose that "\n" should be system EOL. I don't want to
read off the input what that is; I want to write the proper EOL
for the system on which Lua is running.
