It seems like triple-quoted strings don’t preserve the line separator of the system.
For example, on Windows this:
"-first line\r\n-second line"
Is this by design? Is there any official documentation about line separators in triple-quoted strings?
Yes. It is so by design. There is a key requirement that behavior of the code should not depend on the platform it was compiled on. If you want platform line separators, I’d suggest:
That makes sense thank you.
I recommend adding a short comment about line separators in this section of the docs:
We initially assumed that there was a problem with our environment setup so it took a while to narrow in on the root cause.
I’ve created KT-56021 Docs: Mention that multiline strings always use NL separators regardless of the platform.
