Pretty much, with the exception of its use in "crlf":
Linefeed = ASCII 10
cr/return = ASCII 10 -- the UNIX line ending
crlf = ASCII 13 & ASCII 10
So much confusion surrounds the misnamed constants "return" and "cr", which
suggest ASCII 13 but are actually ASCII 10. I understand that it's there
for compatibility with Mac-specific tools like HC, but it does create
confusion (hence this oft-repeated thread).
