The Carriage Return (CR) is not written.
Is it possible to change to use CRLF?

Resolution

CR, LF can be used in GEL script by using the below characters.
CR :  &#013;

There is a sample gel script code to output text file.

-----------------------------
<gel:script 
  xmlns:gel="jelly:com.niku.union.gel.GELTagLibrary"
  xmlns:ftp="jelly:com.niku.union.gel.FTPTagLibrary"
  xmlns:file="jelly:com.niku.union.gel.FileTagLibrary"
  xmlns:core="jelly:core">

 <core:set value="ABCDEFG" var="S1"/>
<core:set value="HIJKLMN" var="S2"/>

 <file:writeFile fileName="c:/temp/test.txt" delimiter=""  embedded="false">
   <file:line>
        <file:column value="${S1}"/>
   </file:line>    
   <file:line>
        <file:column value="${S2}"/>
   </file:line>    
 </file:writeFile>
</gel:script>
-------------------------

Open the created file by using notepad.

Open this file by using binary editor. The "0A" is used. (0A means LF)

Changed GEL script like as below to add CR.

  xmlns:core="jelly:core">

 <core:set value="ABCDEFG" var="S1"/>
<core:set value="HIJKLMN" var="S2"/>

 <file:writeFile fileName="c:/temp/test.txt" delimiter=""  embedded="false">
   <file:line>
        <file:column value="${S1}&#013;"/>
   </file:line>    
   <file:line>
        <file:column value="${S2}"/>
   </file:line>    
 </file:writeFile>
</gel:script>
