Re: Checkout without \r's

Okay - under Linux, 'how do I checkout WITH \r's?' that's easy - put em in
the file, check it in, and check it out... but woe to the windows user - who
now get's \r\r\n's.

under windows, how to do the same?  Well if I have complete control over all
options, use cygwin CVS and UNIX style file endings - problem is that's an
option, and I can't seem to convince everyone to use the same options.
Otherwise, what I see is not what I get.

If one is developing and working with both platforms, his tools better be
able to work with each other's TEXT without difficulty.

How can I even guarantee that the source used to build the same object on
different platforms was the same?

I know I see even more sign of segregation of text and binary in CVS today
than in prior versions... it's really too bad that everyone knows and is
comfortable with CVS... if only they had realized sooner, this mentality
that 'what you checkin is NOT what you checkout' would not have been so
concrete, and this ... would not be an issue.

If there is no spoon...there are no bugs, and there IS no spoon.
