Netbeans handles line endings differently depending on how a new file is created.
(Using Windows Xp sp3)
- Create a PHP file by File->New File...-> PHP File and the resulting file has Unix line endings.
- Create a blank file and it has Windows line endings.
Netbeans uses the first line to determine the line endings for a document but for new files the line endings should be
Which leads to another problem:
If a file contains a mix of line endings Netbeans will not preserve the original line endings and will overwrite all the
lines with whatever was found on the first line.
Netbeans also does not provide a way to set the line endings for new files (Eclipse does). I use Windows but must work
with Linux as well so want Netbeans to only save with Unix line endings.
