Hi All,

I am writing with a question about choosing the line ending aspect of a 
file, please.

I use write.csv and write.table to export work to CSV files and TXT 
files. I am planning now on how to share my work with the Windows crowd 
beyond only sharing with the Linux crowd. I use my text editor to flip 
the line ending option from Linux to Windows after exporting. This is 
inefficient for me to accomplish if I ramp up production as I expect 
will occur.

Staying with the character encoding of UTF-8 seems fine for now from 
what I understand I need to deliver to my customers.

What seems more efficient to me is to learn how to use R to define the 
line ending aspect of the exported file. I have not found if this is an 
option within R.

Is it possible within R to define the line ending aspect of file output?

Kindest Regards,
