RE: svn:eol-style issue

I know that TortoiseSVN does not work on AIX and Solaris, in fact I said
that they use Visual Studio, which, as long as I know, runs only on


On Solaris and AIX we just use Subversion to check out the code. And
this is why I hope I would find a solution to my problem using
Subversion, instead of, as someone suggested, using a third-party editor
in Windows.


Visual Studio IS used to edit all files, as this is the main developing
platform. But when the code is checked out on Solaris to be built,
that's when we have the problem, because, as you said, Windows uses CRLF
and Solaris doesn't like that.


Thanks anyway

        Hi everybody,


        I have an issue with the EOL and consequently with the
svn:eol-style property. I have found another post about it but it didn't
say how to solve the issue, and also it was a bit old so maybe now we do
have a solution.


        The problem is across-platform problem. We have Subversion 1.3
installed on a Linux box, but the product is maintained on AIX, Solaris
and Windows. All developers use Visual Studio to do their job and
TortoiseSVN to commit the changes.

TSVN does not work on AIX or Solaris. How do you checkout the files on
those systems?

If you use TSVN to checkout onto a network file system that you share
with AIX then the line endings will be native to windows e.g. CRLF.


        On AIX and Windows everything is fine, but on Solaris sometimes
the build failed because the compiler does not like the EOL of some
files. These happens (and strangely not always) when the files have been
edited using Visual Studio.

VS is a Windows tool and it only uses CRLF EOL. Don't use it to edit
unix files and things will work better.

Try using an editor that understands line endings. SciTE or Barry's
Emacs work with any EOL.
