comment Notepad++ new line only inserting CR when opening empty file (0 byte text file created in Windows Explorer)
I've had the same thing happen to me in Notepad++ and it's been driving me up the wall suspecting a bug in Notepad++. Turns out I now suspect that I am inadvertently hitting either Ctrl+M (Mac EOL 0xD only) or Ctrl+J (Unix EOL 0xA only) as I'm typing. These seem to be default keyboard shortcuts for Notepad++ -- annoying! Currently trying to find out how / where to disable these (they're not in the usual Settings > Shortcuts menu.

comment Running python / ruby interactively from within Notepad++ (NppExec console)
Thanks for the response. Your quote about console buffers, NppExec and Npp_run got me looking into this again and testing what exactly NppExec's console buffers do with respect to i/o. Apparently, they do take both input and reflect output. So the simple python program print("Enter anything: ", end=""); response=input(); print(response) will work when called from within Npp_Exec's console using python $(FILE_NAME). This has led me to a solution that works -- see answer. So (+1) for partial response that motivated finding an actual solution! Thanks.
