vrf Mystery Linefeed (bug?)

Question asked by bwalden on Feb 3, 2001
The <cr> or <lf> I was worried about in my last message is not the
result of a bug.  Its one of those things you get to read about in the
last quarter of the Advanced Programming Manual.  I get the impression
its a useful feature but the reason escapes me.  Its an unexpected
annoyance when you are attempting to construct an output string which
will not be passed through an Instrument I/O object.  Instrument I/O
doesn't pass the mystery character but, unfortunately, it can't be used
for all hardware interfaces.
