The following bug has been logged on the website: Bug reference: 15983 Logged by: James Inform Email address: (redacted) PostgreSQL version: 11.5 Operating system: Mac / Linux Description: When using "pg_dump --inserts" to generate insert statements in my dump file, all line feeds (LF and CRLF) in e.g. text fields are converted to LF. After importing the dump file using psql, all CRLF are gone and I have LF everywhere. So in fact pg_dump -> psql for backup/restore changes my data. This way I am loosing information that is necessary for applications that expect CRLF and not LF in the data they get from PostgreSQL. Btw. when not using --inserts in pg_dump then everything works fine and \r\n is used in the copy command for CRLF. So, I think we have to opportunities: 1. Fix this behaviour for --inserts option 2. State the behaviour in the manual, so that it is clear for every user.
