That does seem to work, yes. I thought there was some magic reason we were using PG_BINARY_W and not "w".. Assuming there isn't, attached patch is certainly cleaner. >I don't know what Windows editors other than Notepad don't understand >line feeds properly - Wordpad at least does, as well as every editor I >actually use on Windows. I've seen a couple, though I can't recall right now which they were. Wordpad can play some nasty tricks on you with copy/paste, and semi-formatted texts, though. I don't use notepad much myself either, since there are plenty of good editors out there. But notepad is the one that's going to be on *every* windows system... //Magnus
