Dear Igor

I am pretty certain that this problem only occurs on OS X. The default outputLineEndings on Windows will be CRLF (correct for Windows). On Linux it will be LF. This might be a good way for cross-platform scripting:

  if the outputLineEndings = "cr" then
    set the outputLineEndings to "lf"
  end if
  put "Hello World!" && the date && the time & return & "Goodbye" & return

Also, here on MacOS X, it seems that setting it to “crlf” also works. Would that be a better -i.e, more ‘cross-platform’ compatible - solution? Or is there a platform where CRLF would cause issues?
