Standard Pascal requires that end-of-line characters read from text files be converted to spaces. For example given
where f is a text file at end-of-line and c is a character variable then according to Standard Pascal, after the read above, c should contain a space character rather than an end-of-line character. Irie Pascal does not convert end-of-line characters read from text files, so in the example above c will contain an end-of-line character (i.e. a linefeed character, chr(10)).
