I have a technical choice to make, and I don’t know the right answer – perhaps you can help me?

I apologise in advance for a long and technical posting – it will doubtless be “dumbed downâ€￾ in the opinion of those who already understand the problem, and “full of mind-numbing detailsâ€￾ for those who don’t.

The Line Endings Problem

Symbian has millions of lines of source code, stored in text files. We want that code to be accessible to people who have PCs running Windows, and we’d also like it to be accessible to people running Linux, but those systems use different sequences of characters in a file to indicate the end of a line of text. It’s a standard problem faced by any programming project which expects to work with both Windows and Linux, and it’s usually solved by having your source code control system automatically convert text files into the appropriate format for each user.
