The classic record separator for *NIX-style text files is LF, which is very
much different from RS = 0x1E. I haven't seen FS, GS, RS, US used for what
they were intended a long time ago in the last 40 years. No utility I know
makes use of them. You might want to think twice before you plan to
structure your data this way.
