line breaks in various OSes

Recommended Posts

If I wanted to remove the line breaks in a std::string (that was created from a std::ifstream from a text file), is simply searching through the string and removing all ''\n'' and ''\r'' characters sufficient for most/all OSes? Primarily curious about MacOSX, Win32 and Linux. It does appear to be sufficient for Linux.

That''ll do. Under unix it''s \n only, Windows it''s \r\n and Mac <= 9 it''s \r (I believe - plus I''m guessing OS X uses \n since that''s the same as unix)

If I had my way, I''d have all of you shot!
