Subject: Convert Sys-Syslog files from DOS EOLs to UNIX EOLs
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.2k
A recent discussion on p5p: http://www.xray.mpe.mpg.de/mailing-lists/perl5-porters/2009-10/msg00967.html lead to a change being made to the release process so that certain files (mainly under win32/) that used to be converted from UNIX EOLs (in the repository) to DOS EOLs (in the release tarball) are no longer converted. The reason was simply that it is no longer necessary for these files to have DOS EOLs, since modern Windows programs cope perfectly well with UNIX EOLs, and it is simpler not to do the conversion. It was noticed at the same time that a small number of other files currently have DOS EOLs in the repository, and it would perhaps be simpler if all files in the repository had UNIX EOLs (unless any have to have DOS EOLs for some reason). The following files in Sys-Syslog have DOS EOLs. It would be helpful if a new release of Sys-Syslog could be made which converts these files to UNIX EOLs, and it would be best for people in the future looking back through the history of changes to files if nothing else was changed in these files at the same time (otherwise those other changes would get masked somewhat by the noise of the EOLs changes).

With apologies for the delay, this is now the case in the release 0.29 of Sys::Syslog, just uploaded on the CPAN, sponsored by the Perl QA Hackathon 2011 in Amsterdam. -- Sébastien Aperghis-Tramoni Close the world, txEn eht nepO.
