CR/LF problem

CR/LF problem in Delphi Single User Apps topic (part of our Pascal and Delphi Coding group).

Quick Search: problem   CR/LF problem  
I am a newbie to Delphi programming.

I am trying to write LF (linefeed) character in a ASCII file using Delphi application. But it always writes CRLF instead. No matter what I do it prefixes CR with LF.

Can anybody help me how to fix the problem?

Thanks in advance.

It depends on how you are writing to the file. If you use WriteLn then it will always append [CR][LF] to the end of each line. However, if you use Write, then nothing is appended and you can write out a [LF] wherever you want it to appear.

For example:

procedure Form1.WriteToFile;

AssignFile(OutFile, 'temp.txt');
Write(OutFile, 'This is the first line.' + #10);
Write(OutFile, 'This is the second line.' + #10);
Write(OutFile, 'And this is the final line.' + #10);

Hope this helps,
