This sounds like a variation of the LineEnd problem.
There are three ways of separating lines in text files-
CR used in Mac
LF used in Unix
CRLF used in Windows
Squeak chose CR as its standard. I would guess you are reading a file
made on a Windows platform. Find the method
and see if you can apply it to your file's contents before making your Set.
