If we want to make the script also work appropriately on Windows, however, should we leave the outputLineEndings set to “crlf”?:

If this is the case, should I do a platform check first, like this?:
-- ensure that we use the correct ‘return' character for this platform:
if the platform is "Win32" then set the outputLineEndings to "crlf"
else set the outputLineEndings to "lf"
put "Hello World!" & return
Would that work on all 3 platforms? - sorry, I don’t have a Windows machine, so can’t test it!
Many thanks for the ongoing assistance!
