----------------------------------

What happens when one line ends with CR and another with CRLF?

> Hi All,
> <My first attempt at adding code to this project>
> In my use-case , I have to read a CSV file, Mangle some columns and then write out a new csv file with those mangled columns.
> I have gone through the parser code and I have found no usable way of getting the line ending information from the CSVParser object. The function readEndOfLine just consumes End of line whether it is CRLF or LF.
> Now that problem is that when I am writing my file back using the CSVPrinter, I need to know what line ending my input file was. I could write an external function to do that. A better way would be to store that information in the CSVParser object and just use it.
> To do that I am just saving the state in a variable and exposing that using a getter.
> I have done some basic testing. and Submitting a pull request regarding that.
