When doing a Perl RegEx multi-line search (?m), all of the lines of a file are copied to a single buffer and line ending characters are inserted between the lines so the RegEx engine can search the entire text. That is where the line ending characters are coming from.

I suppose I’ll need to do some more work on the Perl RegEx multi-line search support to see if I can remove some of the remaining issues.
