Description

Description:
Creates a string containing a line break, similar to lineBreak for text. The name is inspired by c++ std::endl (end line). The command returns "\r\n", which contains control characters rather than printable characters:
hint str count "\r\n"; // 4 hint str count endl; // 2
The line break works for diag_log and ctrlSetText. It does not work with the hint because hint interprets printable "\n" as line break instead. Alternatively one can use toString command to get other characters.

toArray endl results in [13, 10]. toString [13, 10] is therefore equivalent (or at least very similar) to endl.
