A new procedure SetTextLineEnding (var T: text; S: string) was added 
to System unit in CVS. This allows you to change line ending for 
individual text files. After call to Assign the line ending for that 
file is set to the default line ending on your platform, then you can 
change the default value using the newly provided procedure - since 
that time all WriteLn calls will use your new value. Changing the 
default value system-wide would be dangerous because of output to 
console, redirection, libraries possibly expecting particular 
behaviour etc.
