Hi Pablo,

But now I don’t understand is the following issue: if the saved file
contains "\r\n", why does basic Notepad the new lines?

"\r\n" are the chars to get new lines in Windows. Or what am I missing here?

I'm not too sure what you're asking here, but Notepad was somewhat-
recently updated to handle both CRLF and LF line endings:


Hi Max,

I realized later that I was doing something wrong. My fault here.

Also, you should probably check to make sure that the results of the
file don't depend on the current code page on Windows. Try writing out a
buffer from ConTeXt with the following contents:


First, run "chcp 65001" before running "context" and record the size of the
file written. Then, run "chcp 1251" and run "context" again. Hopefully the
file size doesn't change; but if it does, then that means that the binary
content of any file written will depend on the system's default code page,
which would complicate making reproducible hashes.

For more than two decades, all my TeX sources are written in UTF-8.

I thought that ConTeXt would output the same character encoding as in
the source file when saving a buffer.

I haven’t found this issue and I’d say that all my saved buffers are
UTF-8 encoded.
the magic is in

savedata(name,replacenewlines(content),"\n",option == v_append)

because tex reads in and then lost what it saw (cr lf crlf) we use the line endings of the operating system (good old typewriters and windows use cr+lf and old macs uses cr while linux uses lf)
