Which linefeed is the correct one?

Recommended Posts


Not necessary but:

what is the correct linefeed to use in autoit?

right now I'm using @CRLF, as it was wat I started off using, and can't be bothered to change...

is there actually a difference, if so, which one is better.


Carriage return, Chr(13); sometimes used for line breaks.


Line feed, Chr(10); typically used for line breaks.


= @CR & @LF ;occasionally used for line breaks.

so I presume its @LF that I should use...

and as said in the title, it must be some forum command code, @....

couse I can't search any forums for @CRLF
