Newlines in Lansa 12 and 14

As someone mentioned a while back on the forum, getting a newline, or indeed any character from a character code, is difficult to find. But it is easy, once you know how:

(10).AsUnicodeString

returns a carriage return in ANSI. I’d probably prefer

(13).AsUnicodeString + (10).AsUnicodeString

as I am primarily targeting the Windows platform.

However, this is a solution for Lansa v. 14, not v. 12, where AsUnicodeString does not exist. In Lansa v. 12 you write

(13).AsByte.AsString + (10).AsByte.AsString
