Stupid Newlines

| | Comments (0)
With Mac::OSA, you can get the source of the compiled OSA script (such as AppleScript) that you are working with (unless it was saved without the source).

my $desc = OSAGetSource($component, $scriptid, typeChar);
my $source = $desc->get;

But even on Mac OS X, it is returned with Mac newlines, CR, instead of Unix newlines, LF. Even if the input source was with Unix newlines.

"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt."
