CR is "carriage return" (ASCII char #13, "\r")
LF is "line feed" (ASCII #10, "\n")

DOS and *some* parts of Windows wants text lines to end with both
characters. Unix, Linux, and ISO C want just the LF. (And older(?)
MacOS uses CR just to be perverse...)

Windows, right? (Notepad is known to do that to you) There's a
dos2unix command in the tools package which you can just run over your
various text files.
