Line endings from a different O/S  RSS feed

I use a FileReader to read a text file and a StringWriter to write it into a String. Then I do some stuff to the String and rewrite the file using a FileWriter. Each change to the String is always contained within a single line; I never intentionally add or remove line endings.

If the file contains line endings from a different operating system (e.g. Unix line endings on Windows), will these be retained in the final file?

Note that an HqnFile is just a File, as far as you are concerned!
