B4J Question File.ReadList's line terminator?

What is the terminator of a line when ReadList is used? CRLF, LF or CR? The C# equivalent assumes all three which is annoying because the log files I generate use CR to separate the lines of multiline log entries.

What does ReadList assume?

It uses CRLF

CRLF As String

New line character. The value of Chr(10).

Trying:

B4X:
Dim SB As StringBuilder
    SB.Initialize
    SB.Append("Line 1").Append(Chr(13))
    SB.Append("Line 2").Append(Chr(10))
    SB.Append("Line 3").Append(CRLF)
    File.WriteString("C:\temp","test.txt",SB.ToString)
    Log(File.ReadList("C:\temp","test.txt"))

Gives:

B4X:
(ArrayList) [Line 1, Line 2, Line 3]

Pity. Would like to have had the behaviour adjustable.

Anyway, thanks.
