Change "n" to "\n"
Authored by: dfe on Aug 08, '07 09:31:12AM

As anoher poster here has noted, Geeklog somehow munged the C source in an odd way and changed the last printf("n") (prints a newline) to printf("n") (prints a literal letter n). Just in case geeklog munges this post that is double-quote backslash n double-quote.

I also noticed that another poster here decided that if you change the if 1 to if 0 then it goes back to the original code I wrote that dumps it out as raw binary data. This can then be used as the argument to defaults write if you don't use the -data flag which causes the defaults command to use the data as is. Your mileage may vary on that one though.
