Is there a constant available in Node.JS for a newline character that is specific to the platform the application is running on?
Not sure if this is new in the 0.8.x but there is now a constant http://nodejs.org/api/os.html#os_os_eol
var endOfLine = require('os').EOL;
Unfortunately there isn't a constant, but you determine it yourself using:
var nl = (process.platform === 'win32' ? '\r\n' : '\n')
(note this is quite a naive solution)
