newline: /n[y]oo'lin/ n.  1. [techspeak, primarily UNIX]
   The ASCII LF character (0001010), used under {{UNIX}} as a text
   line terminator.  A Bell-Labs-ism rather than a Berkeleyism;
   interestingly (and unusually for UNIX jargon), it is said to have
   originally been an IBM usage.  (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}, {terpri}.
