CVS - Control-M character in source files import from Windows XP to Linux platform
Posted on 2005-03-07
Problem is that when I transfer the files from XP to Linux (I actually just place them in a samba shared directory) then import them into cvs, I also get a Control-M (^M) character at the end of each line(I know this is effectively a carriage return.), although I get the $Revision$ and $Log$ correctly translated.
I can get around the Control-M characters by importing using the "-kb" option, however when I do this the $Revision$ and $Log$ tags aren't translated.
Anyone know a way I can have both? Or would I need to write some c/perl thang to sort this out?
Version info... CVS 1.11.17, Linux Fedora Core 3
