Re: Moving working copy to other machines

I have done a checkout to Windows and one to Linux and
my results show that the text base files always have CR-LF
in them. This differs from what you suggest here. I did
a svn status on Linux and it shows no modifications as it
should on a fresh untouched working copy. A check of files
in the working copy shows that they have the correct eol,
that is, a LF for each line.

I have to disagree on the effect of less. Something is changing
the files when mounted via smbfs and less or some other file acces
is used. svn diff then claims that the file has only line feeds as the eol
character. A check of the file with a hex editor clearly shows that
the CR-LF is really there. Thus I can only conclude that something in
the system info for each file is changed so that svn diff and svn status
treat the file like it is from Linux instead of MS Windows.
