Loftware Versions 5.3.0.1. and above

Description
CR/LF's in a pass file cause parsing problems.
CR/LF's need to be Encoded in the pass file with a set of characters that will not cause parsing problems.
Solution
In Loftware Versions 5.3 and above, support was added for two new pass file commands: *ENCODELF,ASCIICHAR *ENCODECR,ASCIICHAR The data after the comma is the decimal value of the character.
Example
If you need to have a CR in a data block (for a paragraph field), your pass file might look like this:
*FORMAT,mylabel *PRINTERNUMBER,1 *ENCODECR,63 PARTNO,1A342 DESC,GREEN WIDGET?WITH SQUARE SIDES? *PRINTLABEL
When the *ENCODECR finds an occurance of the ASCII 63 char (which is a "?"), a Carriage Return will occur.
