I hadn’t monitored Notepad++ in a very long time, so I was glad that User Thomas Owens mentioned that it can show you the CR and LF codes:
With Notepad++, you can show end-of-line characters. It shows CR and LF, instead of “\r” and “\n”, but it gets the point across. […]
To use Notepad++ for this,
- open the View menu, open the Show Symbols slide out, and
- select either “Show all characters” or “Show end-of-line characters”.
I needed this because many development environments get confused when you have text files using a mix of line-break kinds (in my case LF, CR and CRLF).
via Text Editor which shows \r\n? – Stack Overflow.

Much more than I needed (plenty of add-on scripts too), but more than enough to get some simple text displayed.

Out of the box, a MacBook can do tethering using:
