Do you know the ASCII code for CR_LF and its buddies?

I don’t.

And I don’t want to. Why waste memory on stuff like that?

And I don’t need to because ABAP has a class just for that.

Meet CL_ABAP_CHAR_UTILITIES. It has some methods to convert ENDIAN to number and vice-versa, but that’s not why I’m talking about it. It’s because of the constants it defines:




  • CR_LF



  • and some more

When you need a CR_LF, instead of trying to find its ASCI code you can simply type CL_ABAP_CHAR_UTILITIES=>CR_LF and there you have it.

Thank you Sérgio Serra for the tip.
