Yes yes, it's 13 in hexadecimal. But first, let me tell you my story I was trying to make a high-scores thing, but in order to do so, I'd have to store the scores in a file. The thing is, if the file was created in Notepad, then at the end of each line there would be a newline constant ('\n'), like there should be. Then I ran my prog and got a high score, and it stored it in the file... when I reopened the file in Notepad, it looked fine but when I tried checking the highscores in my prog, it would have extra newlines at the end of each line. Puzzled, I took a look back in Notepad.... it still looked fine. Finally, I deleted a couple characters, and all of a sudden the whole thing squished into 3 lines. Puzzled, I re-made the file and got a highscore again. This time I didn't touch the file with notepad, but opened it with a hex-editor.. guess what I found? At the end of each line, there were 3 characters: 0xD, 0xD, and 0xA. Then I opened Notepad and re-did the file again, and checked it in the hex-editor again... guess what? Only one 0xD this time. So I edited my program to delete the extra 0xD, and the thing worked. So my question is, what is '0xD', and why did it screw the thing up so badly??
