Topic: Converting \r\n -> \n at file load time

@Vadim Petrochenkov do we have an issue for normalizing newlines at file load time? I'd like to look into that. I've actually tried it already and I have questions about the expected behavior of "\r\r\n" :)

I assumed is the issue.

expected behavior of "\r\r\n"

Let me check what VC++ does when reading a file with Windows EOL in text mode.

Vadim Petrochenkov (Jul 21 2019 at 21:20, on Zulip):

^^ \r\r\n is read as \r\n

Vadim Petrochenkov (Jul 21 2019 at 21:23, on Zulip):

Which seems reasonable since it's the simplest and fastest variant.
And if you have things like \r\r\n in a text file, it's understandable if the compiler considers it your problem.

The option with erroring on isolated \rs at load time also looks good to me.
It would allow to do some cleanup in the lexer too.

issue filed, by the way:

Yeah, I think I'll go with making this a hard error. This will make handling of "file > 4GB" somewhat cleaner as well.
