I don't know this code, but this snippet above is the only place you write the
received data so that's where you must be adding the extra CR character (or
whatever extra you get, your pictures weren't exactly clear since you showed
an extra CR and then a line break but what would cause a line break without
being a byte of some sort?). I suspect the outfile thing or outfile.write.

libcurl certainly does not add any extra bytes by itself.
