I’m trying to determine how to ensure my linefeeds are preserved when
reading a file.
If I use File.open the file is read as a single line with no line feeds.
If I use IO.binread, it looks a bit better, but it too looks like it’s
dropping some of the line endings. The CSV file I’m trying to parse is
generated with multiple sections, each section has to be dealt with
differently, so I’m trying to break up the content wherever there is
‘\r\n\r\n’ (a windows box generates these files). However, it can’t
locate those line endings. However, if I read the file into a text
viewer, I can see the CRLF endings.
What’s the best way to handle this in Ruby?
