Inconsistent line endings in 911 files in Boost 1.65.1 tar package

Reported by: villek@… Owned by:
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: None
Version: Boost 1.65.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: crlf line endings Cc:


Try this:

  1. Download boost_1_65_1.tar.bz2.
  2. Extract it on a Linux system.
  3. Find files that have CRLF line endings:

find -type f | xargs file | grep CRLF > ../boost_1_65_1_tar_CRLF.txt

There are 911 such files (list attached), with some files having a mixture of CRLF and LF line endings. This probably isn't a big problem in most cases, but it does create difficulties when you do a CVS import of Boost into a vendor branch.

I think best way to report such general issues is to post to Boost development list

Can we close this?
