Sets the delimiter used to divide a program object's return messages into individual string objects. 'delimiter' must be one of DX_PT_NONE (no delimiter) or DX_PT_CR (carriage-return). See dt_converse(3) for how this property affects a program object's return value.

Return Value

Returns TRUE if the delimiter was set, FALSE if an error was detected, or if 'program' is not a program object.
