Projects/KDE on Windows/Issues/MSVC
This page provides some tips and notes for users of MSVC compiler and/or development environment.
Preserve Line Endings
If you need to have a file with Unix (LF -- 0x0a) line endings if you're using msvc's code editor: go to "File->Advanced Save Options" and set "Line Endings "as "Unix (LF)".
- Note: "Current settings" is the default and works either for your KDE applications; windows-only source files (line endings are preserved) but newly created files have windows line endings :(.
- Note: it is good idea to use Unix (LF) line endings for KDE applications, but if you're using Subversion, it does perform line-endings conversion to Unix style for you upon committing. Using Unix line ending style is good for portability.
