Anyway, it works on windows like that, so if it works on mac too, it will be a valid solution
Are you sure? Because here "\r\n" or "\n" are not stripped. Note that simply doing gfx_drawstr() will mask the issue, but if you replace it with this then you will probably see what I mean:

I just did, and it seems to work the same as on Windows, i.e. it also doesn't strip (or convert) "\r\n" or "\n". But at least it does work consistent across Windows and macOS (and probably also Linux).


I think you are right about file_string() and file_avail(), so maybe this would make more sense then:

while(file_avail(handle)) (
  file_string(handle, #line);
