Goal

Different operating systems, e.g. MacOS, UNIX and Windows, use different characters to represent end-of-lines (EOL). When transferring files between these operating systems, the transferring program, e.g. FTP,  must usually make compensation for these differences and convert the EOL characters respectively, in order for them to be displayed correctly on the target operating system. This note describes how to handle newline characters when transferring text files between operating systems using the File and FTP adapters which are shipped with the BPEL Process Manager.
