Traditional Mac is to use \r.  However OSX is really Unix underneath 
where Postgres works so I think it would be better to stick with \n. 
I don't know exactly what they are doing, but I've noticed that OSX 
applications don't seem to have a problem with \n in text files the 
way they did under OS9.

AFAIK only Windows uses the \r\n combination.
