New submission from James Hutchison <jamesghutchison at gmail.com>:

In windows, 64-bit, python *mostly* writes only a \n to stdout even though it's mode is 'w'. However it sometimes writes a \r\n on certain print statements and erratically when I have multiple processes writing to stdout.

Output looks fine in console, in IDLE, and using v.3.1

Example with multiple processes writing to stdout out using the same code: print("TESTCODE"); (note that in windows, the naked \n is ignored):


Windows program that calls python and receives its piped output is a C# .NET program.
