= 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.
