Hi,

[answer to max]
in fact the checked-out foo.doc and the foo.doc.svn-base are obviously the
same with the same problem...
i was only shocked by the location name of the file which was
.svn/text-base.
A MSWord file considered text, waouh!

[answer to Ben]
no, for my test, i just created a repository with all defaults, import a
foo.doc, check out that doc and hold my breath.

But anyway thanx for the answers !

i was just trying on my WinNT at the office to see the behaviour with Cygwin
and .doc or else files, but actually am using it on my beloved Debian
Gnu/Linux box at home :-)

I should use Cygwin more like Unix on my MS box but i have a strange feeling
about that.

Still i should have read more thoroughly the good ol' doc and not hold my
breath for stuff that obviously would have been managed :-)

Good work and again sorry for the disturbance ...

Rodrigue ASSARD.

Are you sure that foo.doc was converted, but foo.doc.svn-base was not?

I thought it might be the Cygwin text/binmode stuff, but I tested it, and
found that *both* files would be affected, so assumed that
it was not relevant to your problem, and didn't reply.

You must have the 'svn:eol-style' property set to 'native'. Subversion
*never* changes the contents of files unless you set that property, or
set the 'svn:keywords' property. In which case, "don't do that". You
shouldn't be asking Subversion to change newlines in a binary file.

Perhaps you set that value accidentally via [auto-props] or something?
