I have a file 'abc'  of the following format

select [var1]
from table1

I try to read it in using
(gc abc)

do some string manipuiation, But when I output I get a stream of character with no newline.
How can I keep the newline or insert newline. So my output will be like
select [xvar1]
from table1

What I try to do is to transform a stream of token into a new line before each token.
