Readline/Writeline problem VB - multilines read with single Readline

A text file is written in VB using writeline exclusively
and later the file is opened and read in
using Readline. I am finding by looking
in a hex editor that in some cases the
lines are terminated with CRLF(x0dx0a)
in some cases and in other cases the
line is terminated by just a CR (x0d)
When I try to read the lines one at a time
I find that I am getting multiple lines at
a time - with a single readline because
of the missing x0A or LF after some of the
CR 's (x0d) . What can I do ?

Many thanks,

You can try to use Print statement instead of FileSystemObject:
open "c:\.." for output as #1
print #1,"a" & vbcrlf & "b"
close #1

or just one line at a time :
print #1,"a"
print #1,"b"

to read:
Open "c:\.." for input as #1
do while not EOF(1)
lineinput #1,str
....
