How can I write a carriage return and line feed to an ascii file such that it will be properly recognized on both unix and windows operating systems?

They're different on both systems. Different on a Mac too. Check out this
for the platform-independent way to code, and avoid using applications that don't recognize other system's EOL markers (I'm looking at you, Windows Notepad).

If you determine which system it is being opened by you could declare a public static final variable such as:
static final public
WINDOWS_EOL = "\r\n";
static final public String UNIX_EOL = "\n";
and then substitute these variables for the CHAR(10) or such commands at the line ends.
