Problem with output from gawk software in recent Cygwin installation

Hello.

I just tried executing an awk script using the most recent version of gawk,
but the output did not turn out the way that it was supposed to.

This script uses the following command to print the output data to the
output file:
print(cai[i], rpi[i], i) >
"Fit_Height_correln_plot_-_cPuMP_vs_2NH2-cPuMP.dat"

and previously, this command always printed the values of the three
variables on a single line, separated by spaces; however, now the gawk
software is automatically adding hard-returns between the values, resulting
in the three values being printed on separate lines within the data file.

What is going on here, and how do I permanently make it stop??
