Re: vCard save file format binfile or file?

2020-06-02 Thread Andre Garzia via use-livecode
A decade ago I wrote a vCard library for LiveCode:

https://git.sr.ht/~soapdog/vObjectLib

It uses CRLF and file://, I never had trouble opening the generated vCards
but I haven't tested this in years.

UTF-8 files.   https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6350#section-3.1

Sure do wish Livecode would let us declare what a “text” file return character 
or characters was for writing a file. Same as we do with itemdelimiters. 
Something like:

set linedelimiter to U+000D & U+000A

if you give it a .vcf suffix it should work.
