When I read a longer text file created on Mac OS X into the built-in script editor of R for windows, it is read only incomplete. The same file can be loaded without problem e. g. into WordPad.

I think the reason for the behavior is that Mac OS X uses different EOL markers, and R for windows doesn't handle these markers correctly. I don't have access to an UNIX/LINUX system, but I guess files generated on these systems will cause the same problem.

 I can provide an example file which fails if necessary.
