Ticket #1598 (closed task: fixed)
Use consistent UNIX line endings
|Reported by:||mwtoews||Owned by:||chodgson|
According to DevWikiComitGuidelines:
All source code in SVN should be in Unix text format as opposed to DOS text mode
I've found a significant list of DOS files in the SVN tree. This can be slightly problematic; take a look at "invalid_srid-2.0.patch" in #1596, which was a patch created on a UNIX system from a DOS file. The resulting patch file has mixed line endings, which can cause grief for the patch utility.
Examples of DOS files:
trunk/postgis/postgis.sql.in.c trunk/liblwgeom/measures3d.c ...
Of course, BAT files should probably be left alone:
Another type of line ending error (according to some) are text files without a newline character at the end. These files lack consistency, and appear truncated. Possible consequences include a gcc warning: "No newline at end of file".
Examples of files without newlines at the end:
trunk/LICENSE.TXT trunk/doc/faq.xml trunk/doc/html/image_src/de9im06.wkt trunk/liblwgeom/lwgeodetic.c ...
Possible exceptions are one-line text files, like Esri's .prj file (but there's none in the source tree).
