Two questions
Date: 08.02.07 05:47 (Wed, 07 Feb 2007 20:47:27 -0800)
From: David Johnson
Well, I will ask these and hope for an answer before this list shuts
down. :-)

1. When I create a text file ("text/plain") using
textOutputStream1.WriteLine and then read it back, the EndOfLine
characters are detected correctly. But when I create a text file with
a word processor (like TextEdit) the carriage returns are *not*
detected as EndOfLine characters.
For example:

newarray = split(fileString, EndOfLine)
newarray = split(fileString, chr(13) )

Neither of these parse a text processor string into lines.

Is there something I can do to a string that will allow the CRs to be
seen as EndOfLine?

2. When a user of my appllication saves a document, almost all of the
data is text. But the user may have added one (or more) pictures to
the document. How do I save the picture with the text and recover it
when he opens the document later?

RB5.5 pro, OSX 10.3.9

Thanks.

As far as the new list is concerned, will the RB regulars (Joe Stout,
Geoff Perlmann, et. al.) be answering questions on the new list, or
will they be confined to monitoring the forum?

Thanks again,
David

Try ReplaceLineEndings:
Dim s as String
s=ReplaceLineEndings(YourText, EndOfLine)

I wasn't aware that RB now supports embedded images. I'm still using
5.5.5...

If it still doesn't, you could save the images out with a similar name as
the document. For instance, Document1_Image_001.jpg, etc. Then load images
based on the document name. Of course this isn't fool proof...

3)
The new list is already history. RB has declared that they are going to
reactivate the NUG list, but they are still dropping this beginner list.

Subscribe to the NUG as REAL has recanted and will NOT be shutting
that list down
Subscription pages should be back up tomorrow

TextEdit uses Unix line ending which amounts to chr(10)

If they are saving documents from TextEdit with pictures you'll be
dealing with RTFD documents

Probably back to monitoring the old NUG list (see above)

About EndOfLine :
Personaly, I use "EndOfLine.macintosh" in my code. Using the
EndOfLineType (Macintosh, Unix or Windows) might be helpful when
processing a text that comes from an app such as TextEdit.
