File wrong converted after FTP transfer

Hello,

We got a strange problem when transfering a txt file.

The file looks like this before transfering it with a program that uses FTP commands:

410-00000 | ABBOCATH-T N°18 | 9057.000 | ST | 16.35 | 1301

410-00005 | ABBOCATH-T N°18 ABC | 56068.000 | ST | 28.41 | 1301

....

Once the file is transfered, it looks like this in the FTP folder:

410-00000 | ABBOCATH-T N°18 | 9057.000 | ST | 16.35 | 1301 □ 410-00005 | ABBOCATH-T N°18 ABC | 56068.000 | ST | 28.41 | 1301...

The problem is that breaklines are not recognized in this file, they have been changed by this strange character □ after 1301 (it's not exactly that character, but it looks like a square).

I was not able to copy the exact txt file, because that character was converted to a breakline, so I supose that this character means a breakline that is not recognized after transfer.

The code we're using is this:

Could you please help us to get the exact txt file after transfering it?

Thanks in advance.
