Good to know that you have been experimenting with MSVB namespace.

I have fixed the definitions. You should be able to pull the changes from cvs
Btw, a good catch ...

The MSVBFilesystem was squeezed in at the literally the last minute before the tree
was frozen for 1.0 release. So expect to see issues with current builds, but all
this will be addressed with the 1.2 release. mbas and MSVB namespace will have
mainstream ready by then.
If you encounter any nagging issues please raise them in the forum and rest assured
that it will be addressed at the earliest. Better still open bugs in Bugzilla and
it will never get lost in the noise in the discussion lists. Make sure that you
add a test case to reproduce the bug you are seeing.

The Microsoft.VisualBasic namespace has some errors with the newline
constants that have been there for quite some time. I have finally grown
tired of seeing them and have written a small patch to fix them.
Furthermore, it seems like there are bugs in the InputVBFile and
BinaryVBFile because they check for only carriage returns to find the end of
the line. This approach will not work in Unix, and is only partly correct in
Windows. It also seems to me that the choice of vbCrLf to mean "\r\n" is
unwise on most platforms.
I'd like any comments on how this should be handled, and I'd be happy to
write any patches to fix it.
