Hi Chris,

I don't know if this will help but VA Smalltalk has a global variable (a
string in a pool dictionary) called "LineDelimiter".  When the image starts
up it checks to see what platform (OS) it is running on and sets it to CrLf
or Lf as appropriate.  This allows developers to use LineDelimiter wherever
they want (where they need to match the platform) and not need to check the
platform all over the place.  Maybe it will make life a little easier for
