RE: Re: how to checkout on Windows with Unix-style EOL (LF)?

Native does what it says: uses the native eol style on the platform you check out, i.e. CRLF on Windows and LF on Unix.

Where I work we found out that "native" (the obvious choice when you compile source code on different platform) was actually causing the code not to compile correctly on Solaris. Now all files have the svn:eol-style property set to LF, but that had to be done manually, then commit, and only then we were able to checkout on ALL platform with LF. As Lasse said there is not way to pick with eol use dynamically.

The purpose of that flag is to make sure that tools on the platform you're checking it out on is able to correctly process the file.

If you only want to use LF style, why is the file set to native then?

Afaik, there is no setting that will let you pick on checkout time what system to use.

Why cannot I checkout with LF on Windows? This is fascism :-)

If svn:eol-style is set to native or CRLF on the version in the
repository, that's what you'll get when you check out on Windows. If
it's set to LF in the repository, you'll get LF when you check out on
Windows.
