Generic / Text Only Printer output has extra CR/LF characters

Apr 27, 2011

We have a report that was generated from a WinXP machine, using the Generic / Text Only
printer driver. It is sent to a file by using FILE: as the port. When examining the
contents of the report, it is noticed that some graphics characters are embedded in
different places throughout the document. On closer examination they are Carriage Return
(CR) and Line Feed (LF) followed by spaces. We have tried to examine this file for
a pattern of these characters.

What might be causing this behavior? How can it be made so that these characters do
not appear in the file?

Is there another similar printer driver in WinXP that has just generic ASCII text output?
