To Determine the Newline Sequence

The Newline Sequence option determines how carriage returns at the ends of lines are treated.

  1. If the Terminal Options dialog box is not displayed, choose Terminal from the Options menu.

  2. Click the Newline Sequence button in the Keyboard Control section and choose the mode you want:

    • Return Only (the default) generates only a carriage return.

    • Return/Line Feed generates both a carriage return and a line feed.

  3. Click OK at the bottom of the Terminal Options dialog box or press Return to save your selection and exit the window.

    To save your selection and retain the window, click Apply.
