On Unix-like systems newline means '\n'
On Window newline means '\r\n'
So, when you open a file on Window with 'w' option, Win replace
downloaded '\n' with a local '\r\n' and the file isn't readable. If you
use 'wb' you say that you want a binary copy ('b' option) and Win doesn't
Hope it is useful,
