= N =
newline /n[y]oo'li:n/ n.
1. [techspeak, primarily
Unix] The ASCII LF character (0001010), used under Unix as a
text line terminator. Though the term `newline' appears in
ASCII standards, it never caught on in the general computing world
before Unix. 2. More generally, any magic character, character
sequence, or operation (like Pascal's writeln procedure) required
to terminate a text record or separate lines. See crlf,
