Re: No Changes but flagged as modified?

The files may have different EOL characters. This is a problem I am
currently having (and was going to post a question/request about
this).

If you have a merge tool that allows you to check/uncheck a value
similar to "Ignore differences in line ending characters (CR and LF)",
do the files appear to be different?

I use the function "Compare Revisions" in TortoiseSVN to create my
deployment packages. I have recently noticed, that TortoiseSVN is
detecting differences in files that I believe to be the same. When I
use Araxis Merge (my tool of choice), to compare the files, they
appear to be similar (unless I uncheck the "Ignore differences in line
ending characters (CR and LF)" function), in which I see the EOL
characters actually differ.

My question:

Is there a way to get TortoiseSVN to ignore EOL differences when using
"Compare Revisions"?
