The problem goes away if I convert the line endings to UNIX style. The result of displaying the file is shown in the screenshot.

    Yes, DOS line endings cause all kinds of problems. Even windows machines can be set to use UNIX newlines.

    sure but this doesn't work necessarily with all editors on Windows. And to convert all files that I receive is also only a workaround.

    From a conceptual point of view, your parsing module should nevertheless handle them gracefully, don't you agree?

    For the most part it does, but there have always been some kinks. I'll take another look at it.
