Ok so for smalltalk specific code I'll use cr

The reason I needed to know is that I need to make an HMAC-SHA256 hash  
of a multiline string and submit it to a third party for processing.    
In their java and python examples they concatenated in a \n to form  
the multiple line string. At the time I asked, what I was calculating  
was incorrect so as  part of trying to figure out where I had the  
calculation wrong I wanted to make sure I was using the proper  

Thanks again for the help
