I'm sure you noticed the Ctrl-M (^M) at the ends of each line. This seems to be an MS-DOS-like line break (ASCII 0x13 + 0x10). UNIX (and so FreeBSD) use the NL or LF character 0x10. And 0x13 is the CR character which is equivalent to Ctrl-M, if I do remember correctly.
Almost correctly. ASCII CR (Ctrl-M) is 0x0d, which is decimal 13; ASCII LF (Ctrl-J or newline) is 0x0a, which is decimal 10.
