8.9 Text Translation

Text_Translation=xxx’ may be used as the Form parameter passed to Text_IO.Create and Text_IO.Open: ‘Text_Translation=Yes’ is the default, which means to translate LF to/from CR/LF on Windows systems. ‘Text_Translation=No’ disables this translation; i.e. it uses binary mode. For output files, ‘Text_Translation=No’ may be used to create Unix-style files on Windows. ‘Text_Translation=xxx’ has no effect on Unix systems.
