Thanks for the reply.
I did see the parameter, but was not sure if this is the correct
parameter to reference. I also see it in write.csv.
I take it you are saying the eol parameter is the best practice for
exporting from R using these functions. Am I correct or is there another
option other than write.csv and write.table I should be considering?
