Description dynamite 2007-11-07 15:21:12 UTC
[ BUILD # : 200711060000 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.5.* ]

My set-up has my Windows machine sharing its disc to UNIX servers so
that I can build C++ code on HP and Solaris.  Alas, HP building seems
to be sensitive to the line-endings used and so compilation fails
unless the files have UNIX line-endings.  WinCVS lets me do this, and
for that reason I use WinCVS as my CVS client and not NetBeans.

Whilst defining line-endings is not a part of standard CVS, its
presence in WinCVS shows that it's use is not without precedence.

Sounds reasonable, targeting for future release, we'll also have to patch the library.
