= Git notes =
Windows users in particulary should take note of the Line Endings section.
== Line Endings ==
This is a Liux/Windows cross-platform project. Because of this and git's behavior,
file line-endings are important to get right and keep consistent.
The default for all new files in this repo is to use UNIX-style "LF" endings.
The only time Windows-style line endings "CRLF" should be used is if some
Windows-specific file requires them to work properly.
=== Git settings ===
For Windows users, edit .git/config and under [core] add the setting:
autocrlf = false
This will preserve line-endings as they exist in the repo.
=== Visual Studio ===
Visual Studio does *not* have a setting for "always use LF"; to save a file
with different line ends you must use the "File | Advanced Save Options"
dialog and then re-save the file.
Always `git diff` before committing; if every line in a file is marked as
changed then you probably converted CRLF to LF accidentally. Resave the file
and re-diff before committing.
= Header Files =
Compilation on Windows with Visual Studio uses the wxWidgets pre-compiled header.
Including this header will include everything otherwise available through "wx/wx.h"
Linux builds do not have this header available, and must explicitly include "wx/wx.h".
To include files in a cross-platform way, use this pattern:
#include "wx/wxprec.h"
#ifndef WX_PRECOMP
#include <wx/wx.h>
// Other includes not defined in wx/wx.h go here for both platforms.
// Example:
#include <wx/arrstr.h>
For code that does not require the full wx/wx.h header (usually non-GUI code that
makes use of wx core types), include a smaller set of standard includes within the
WX_PRECOMP block if appropriate.

= Bugs, Build Problems and Feature Requests =
GitHub now has an issue tracking feature. e itself already has several
avenues for bug reports and feature requests, as can be found from the
e homepage.
Issues related to building and packaging e itself, or suggested code changes/
refactorings may be placed in the GitHub issue tracker:
