When i write the contents of the buffer which contains the data from ob_get_contents() in a file, Instead of '\n' I am getting the unknown charecter when i opend with the the file by using notepad.It is creating big problem when make CRC32check of the two files.I would be thankfull to you if you could solve it.


Reproduce code:
echo "\nThis is the test-line1\n";
echo "\n this is the test-line2\n";

Expected result:

This is not a bug; it's normal behaviour. Windows notepad works with the standard windows text-file format, which requires two characters for new lines (carriage return + line feed). Most other OS's only require line feed. If you use Wordpad (which supports unix-style endlines) instead of Notepad you'll see everything is as it should.

Replace with these lines in your code:

echo "\r\nThis is the test-line1\r\n";
echo "\r\n this is the test-line2\r\n";

Notepad should then show what you want.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

See last message.

You may also want to use open mode modifier \'t\' on windows systems which automatically converts \\n to \\r\\n.
