I was realy surpriced when I saw that !
I created a file on a samba network drive to UNIX by a 'C' program.
because I already knew that DOS has hex 0A and a hex 0D a the end of a line
and I wanted to
make files created on WIN NT readable to UNIX and VMS , I decidet not using
\n but only hex 0a at the end of the line.
after that I found out that I am still see the same format with vi on UNIX
like every other DOS file.
So I wrote a 'C" program reading out each character from that samba mapped
The result was following :
in DOS I got : text " hex 0A" text like I wrote it before
reading the same identical file from UNIX I got : text " hex 0D" "
hex 0A" text
So my question is : How is that possible , I thpought i am reading the same
Is anyone here who can ask ? thanks a lot
