Is there a constant or something that I can use for a OS compatible new line?

Something that will automatically use \n for Linux and \r for Windows?

I don't know if there is a built-in constant, but one approach would be to make a custom function.  psuedo code:




function mycr() {
 

  $os = php_uname('s');//get the os

  //process the returned value to something standard, ie, change anything containing "Win" to "WINDOWS" or some such

 

  //now branch off that

  if ($os == "Linux")

     return "\n"

  else if ($os == "Windows")

     return "\r"

}

Open in new window
