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"
}
