Tortoise SVN eol line style fix

by Eric on October 9, 2008

Do you use Tortoise as your Subversion client? Does it complain about eol style every time you try to add a file to your repository?  I have a fix for you.

In your c:\documents and settings\[YourUsername]\Application Data\Subversion there should be a file named config.  Open it in a text editor.  There should be a section named [auto-props].  It’s probably toward the bottom.  In that section, add a line like this:

*.cs = svn:eol-style=native

where cs is your file extension.  You’ll want to do it for you file type (cpp, html, pas, h, whatever).  Save the file.  It should no longer hassle you about eol-style when adding files.  

Don’t do it for binary file types.  Also, understand why you shouldn’t.

This assumes a default installation.
